Ethan Crumbley: Sheriff says Oxford is ‘inundated with threats’ following school shooting and panic at vigil

Officials have warned that Oxford has been “inundated with threats” following this week’s deadly high school shooting, after a vigil for the victims descended into panic on Friday night.

Oakland County Sheriff Michael Bouchard said in a press conference on Saturday afternoon that the tight-knit town in Michigan had been rocked by a “huge spike in threats” in the aftermath of Tuesday’s massacre at Oxford High School.

“We’re inundated with threats right now,” he said.

“We have threats against the candlelight vigil last night. We’ve had threats against memorials, we had threats against  individuals, deputies or law enforcement.

“It’s absolutely absurd that after a tragedy we see a huge spike in threats but that’s what we’re seeing.”

Four students were shot and killed and seven other victims were wounded in Tuesday’s shooting spree which marked the deadliest school shooting in the US since 2018.
