"Please note there is no specific threat to the Watertown Unified School District at this time, but we have made a decision to put our schools in a cautionary lock and hold for the afternoon", the district said via it's Facebook page.

A man has been identified by the Rock County Sheriff's Office that they are considering a burglary suspect wanted for questioning. He is 5 feet, 10 inches tall, with green eyes and brown hair.

The Armageddon Gun Shop, on the 2100 block of West US 14, was robbed of rifles and handguns at 8:40 a.m., authorities said. Just after 9:00 P.M. a vehicle fire was reported about three miles away on Pennycook Lane.

North Korean missile launch likely a failure, United States officials say
The North's latest missile launch also came during annual military drills between the United States and South Korea. US officials have not identified what type of missile was tested on March 21 since it exploded so soon after launch.

The vehicle belonged to 32-year-old Joseph A. Jakubowski, who police learned Thursday morning had become 'highly agitated recently regarding a variety of political issues.' He had also allegedly made threats to steal weapons and to use them against public officials or at an unspecified school.

Police believe the fire was started intentionally and that Jakubowski was the suspect behind the fire. Jakubowski is the registered owner of the vehicle.

After school activities will still take place at area schools tonight. Deputies want to question Jakubowski in relation to a robbery at the Armageddon Gun Shop at 2144 W.
