OSHKOSH (WLUK) - A second suspect was convicted Friday of making threats which resulted in the closure of Oshkosh’s public high schools.

Dylan Bird, 18, pleaded no contest to one count of making terrorist threats, while a second count of the same charge was dismissed, according to a court official.

Sentencing is scheduled for June 1.

The other suspect, Andrew Monroe, 18, was previously convicted of a similar count. He will be sentenced June 20.

According to the criminal complaint, Bird, Monroe and 15-year-old teen were at Monroe's Waupaca home on Jan. 10. The document says Monroe dared Bird to call in a threat to get out of school the next day. Bird is quoted as saying he was going to 'shoot up Oshkosh North and West.' The 15-year-old allegedly called in another threat the next night. School was let out early on Jan. 11 and closed the next day.

Bird also pleaded no contest Friday to unrelated charges of bail jumping, retail theft and contributing to the delinquency of a child.
