WALLINGFORD, Conn. (WTNH) — Two students at a high school in Wallingford are now facing charges for alleged threats they made.
A 15-year-old has been charged after allegedly writing a threatening message on a white board at a high school in Wallingford.
According to Wallingford police, on Feb. 21, units received a complaint from the parent of a Sheehan High School student who reported that a threatening message was written on a white board in a classroom.
Police say an investigation revealed that the message was written after school on Feb. 20 and was erased the next morning.

A 15-year-old girl then admitted to writing the message, saying that it was written out of frustration and that it was not directed at anyone.
Officials arrested the student on Feb. 23. She has been issued a juvenile summons to appear in court and has been suspended from school.
Authorities say a second incident occurred at the school on Feb. 23 in which a student walked by a classroom and yelled an alarming statement, prompting students to secure the classroom door. Police arrested a 16-year-old boy for that alleged incident. He is scheduled to appear in juvenile court and has also been suspended from school.
It is not known if the two incidents are related.
Wallingford police are reminding parents to talk with their children and to remind them that what may been seen as a joke or prank can be interpreted differently by others.
