NEKOOSA, Wis. -

A Nekoosa High School student accused of threatening to bring a gun to school to "kill everyone" is charged with disorderly conduct.

Eighteen-year-old Steven Dzieglewicz could spend 90 days in jail if he's convicted. A criminal complaint stated a fellow student told a counselor that during an online chat, Dzieglewicz indicated he had taken a gun to school. It alleges Dzieglewicz said he had a way to kill everyone and that he wanted to end it all.

After learning of the threat, the school was locked down Monday and students were sent home.

The Wisconsin Rapids Daily Tribune reported sheriff's officials searched the school, but did not find a weapon.

  • PHOTOS: Madison store helps collect hundreds of Teddy bears for police

    MADISON, Wis.--A west Madison store is part of an effort to collect hundreds of stuffed animals to donate to six police departments in Southern Wisconsin.

    Todd Merryfield, owner of The Learning Shop at 714 S. Gammon Road, said the store is collecting the bears for officers who use them to help comfort children with whom police come in contact.

    "This is a great way to support what (police) do," Merryfield said. "Those are the kids that need something like this to reassure them, calm them down, and let them know that things are all right."

    Nearly 500 plush animals were donated Tuesday, a Learning Shop spokeswoman said. The Madison store's effort is part of a larger initiative through the Bears for Humanity organization.
