A press release from the Huntley Police Department:
Huntley Police Department Investigates Racially Motivated Threats
On Monday, November 13, 2017, the Huntley Police Department was made aware of disparaging racial and threatening comments that were sent to a juvenile via Xbox Live.
The Huntley Police Department opened an investigation into the matter and has conducted several interviews.
In addition, a search warrant was executed and additional information is being sought.
The Huntley Police Department is working the investigation in cooperation with the Huntley Community School District 158 and the Lake in the Hills Police Department, due to the possible involvement of current or former students within the schools in the area.
The Huntley Police Department takes matters such as this extremely serious and will take appropriate actions to maintain the safety and well-being of our community.
No charges have been filed at this point, and the case remains an active investigation.
