BREAKING: Student Held On $10M Bond For Threatening To ‘Re-Enact Florida Shooting’



SOUTH LYON, Mich. (WJBK) – A South Lyon high school senior is spending his 18th birthday in Oakland County Jail after threatening to re-enact the Florida high school shooting on Wednesday.

According to South Lyon Police, Ryan Debruyne sent a 17-year-old friend a Snapchat asking if he wanted to re-enact the Florida shooting on Wednesday. The student said no and then called the police.

This past Saturday, police tracked down Debruyne in his oak in Green Oak Township. His parents allowed police in to interview him and he admitted to sending the message.


Police searched the family’s home, his room, and car and did not find any guns that he had access to.

On Tuesday, he was arraigned on charges of making a false report of terrorism. That carries a maximum penalty of 20 years.

On Wednesday, his 18th birthday, he appeared before another judge for a probable cause hearing. He’s being held on a $10,000,000 cash/surety bond and remains in the Oakland County Jail.

South Lyon Schools are on mid-winter break and are not in session. Classes resumed on Wednesday with an increased presence from police.

“No firearms were found in his possession or under his control,” according to the press release from police. “The suspect was subsequently transported to an area hospital for evaluation and is not in police custody.”
