After being taken into custody yesterday, Slattery remains at the Lake County Sheriff’s Office, where he has been uncooperative with the ongoing investigation.

During a news conference on Tuesday morning, Lake County Sheriff Rodney Fenske said, Slattery “wasn’t happy with his grades.”

On Monday the campus was put on lockout while 106 people were on campus. Around 40 people were evacuated, and the remaining students and staff were moved to the cafeteria while the bomb squad, along with two bomb-sniffing dogs, investigated a backpack near the library.

Classes resumed Tuesday morning at the school.
