Oslo police announced that a secondary school near Oslo was closed after a video warning of a high school massacre was discovered on YouTube.
Creator of the video, a 15 year old Kjenn school student whose name has not been disclosed, has admitted posting the video.
“He has not been arrested (and) he is not in police custody. We will speak with him and his father during the day,” said Loerenskog police chief superintendent Jens Bruun.
The 50-second video, posted on YouTube on Saturday, was removed late yesterday.
With music playing in the background, it showed a picture of the school, Braun said. Pictures of six teachers then popped up, as a voice said: “It will happen one day, it will be a bloody machine, one day you will die.”
Brown refused to comment on the boy’s explanation, but said police did not belive he was in possession of weapons.
“The Kjenn school, some 15km east of Oslo, has about 400 students aged 13 to 17,” Bruun said.
After November 7 when 18-year-old Finnish student Pekka-Eric Auvinen killed eight people before turning his gun on himself at the Jokela High School north of Helsinki several schools have been evacuated and closed due to threats.
Before the massacre on November 7, Auvinen posted videos and messages on YouTube indicating what he planned to do.
