The students were disciplined by the school following a Novi police investigation into two separate incidents Oct. 25 and Oct. 31. A parent reported their child told them a person wearing a Guy Fawkes mask from the movie “V for Vendetta” was making “unsettling statements” on social media toward Detroit Catholic Central High School students, according to officials.

The second incident arose on Halloween after another picture of a Guy Fawkes mask was circulating among Detroit Catholic Central High School students, along with claims that everyone would be wearing the mask and start killing during Mass on Friday, according to police.

The school has not disclosed how the students were disciplined and the case has since been closed by the Oakland County Prosecutor’s Office.
