On Wednesday, March 7, a Romeo High School faculty member found a bullet in the hallway towards the end of the day. After finding a .22 caliber bullet, administration and local authorities were immediately notified. Investigation ensued, reviewing video surveillance and searching around the area of suspicion, including lockers, classrooms and bathrooms. Potential witnesses were also interviewed. After investigation was completed, police reached the conclusion that there was not a credible threat. Students were released from class as usual after 6th hour; however, police presence was added as a safety precaution. On Thursday, March 8, Michigan State Police returned to follow up on the incident. RHS and the Michigan State Police are committed to supporting the schools and community. As far as we know, there is no credible threat at the moment.
