Great. Son's HS is on lockdown from a texted threat

threat read "ima shoot up today 9/7/22 at 11 dont come to school"

Local police have essentially surrounded the school, helicopters in the air, roads blocked off


A few years ago, there was a series of fake threats that all had to be taken seriously, of course, at the two HS nearest us. All ended up being pranks as social media made it so easy for that to happen anonymously.


Sick of this crap.

2. yeah. everyone is.

Since an image of someone typing a message was airdopped to students' phones, cops should be able to find out what phone originally sent the image and where that person got the message in the first place

5. Are the police inside the building? Or, just surrounding it?

6. I've seen pics of cops standing outside entrances but

also local FB group reports of police going through the school

I hear another helicopter headed in the general direction of the school.


EDIT: But judging from the threat pics I've seen, looks like someone was typing up a message (but not sending it), did a screenshot, air dropped it to some students.

7. That was a frequent event at my Mom's VoTech school

Back in the mid 90s through when she retired in 2005. Usually "chipped" cell phones and I guess internet #s later.

10. So glad to hear everything turned out okay and your son is home now!

I hope the police catch whoever did this. There's no excuse putting students and their parents through the trauma you endured today.

The cost and resources needed to secure a school arenít free and take away from other needs that should be supported
