Nationwide social media threat 'hoax' prompts precautions at Simsbury High School

Holland police investigated a social-media threat late Wednesday Feb. 22 which warned high school students to stay home. The threat was discredited by local police

He said he immediately dispatched officers to Silver High School and began investigating to get to the source of the threat.

The second Facebook status, posted 11 minutes later, reads, "Yes SHS is the school I want".

Bailey said the sheriff's office contacted law enforcement in OH and was "told the original post has been tracked to the state of Kentucky and a person of interest is being interviewed".

Wasson says numerous other law enforcement agencies across the country have investigated this same threat over the past few days and have also found no credible signs of validity.

The Guam Police Department and Navy police conducted a sweep of the facility with K-9 units, Guam Homeland Security said.

Another social media threat possibly made Sumrall High School a target Thursday morning. Fontana police also said that the SHS threat was not related to Summit High School.

"We rely on the help from our community and working together provides us with the greatest opportunity to prevent something tragic from occurring", Marina police said in th post. School will be in session on Thursday, February 22.

"Take your gun to school and shoot it up".

According to Anderson, the Federal Bureau of Investigation is working diligently with agencies across the region to determine the origin of the "SHS" threat, find the person responsible, and hold them accountable.

The threat did not specify a school or district, meaning area districts are taking precautions.
