MADISON, FL (WTXL) - Madison County parents have been making calls to police and deputies, concerned over a recent social media post threatening a school shooting. Madison County Deputies say though the threat was directed at a school system in Michigan.

Deputies say an investigation into the post uncovered that it originated from a town in Michigan, directed at the Madison School District there.

The post said, “I’m gonna shoot Madison up tomorrow. Don’t show up any of you. Gonna start at 9," according to deputies.

13 ABC Action News says the threat was made against the Michigan school system on Monday from a phony Facebook account.

Authorities there decided to cancel classes for the entire district on Tuesday but students were back in class on Wednesday morning.

On Monday evening, authorities had a "person of interest" in custody.

Deputies in Madison County, Florida, did thank concerned parents that called in the social media post.
