Farmington Central student faces charge in social media threat

A 17-year-old Farmington Central High student has been charged in connection with a social media threat that closed two Farmington Public Schools on Thursday.

According to a press release, Myreon Daquan Davis, 17, of Redford Township, faces a single charge, False Report or Threat of Terrorism. He was arraigned by 47th District Court Magistrate Michael Sawicky, who set a $50,000 bond.

The district closed Farmington Community School and Farmington Central High School after a threatening message was posted on Twitter Wednesday afternoon. Both schools, located in the same building, at 30415 Shiawassee St. in Farmington Hills, will be open Friday.

According to the release, Farmington Public Schools administrators contacted police immediately after learning of the threat. Investigators arrested Davis Wednesday night. His family cooperated with police, and no weapons were found inside the home.

Davis is expected to appear in 47th District Court next on April 6. Anyone with information about this incident is asked to call the Farmington Hills Police Command Desk, 248-871-2610.

In a message sent Thursday, Farmington Public Schools Superintendent George Heitsch said the incident “is not representative of our student body and is simply unacceptable.”

“Student and staff safety is our foremost concern. I would like to express my sincere appreciation for the work of the Farmington Hills Police Department. Their prompt, thorough attention to this matter demonstrates both a high level of collaboration and commitment to maintaining safe schools.”
