DEVELOPING: Wintersville Police investigating threats involving Indian Creek High School

Camden police have deemed a threat of school violence at Camden High School not credible but continue to investigate the matter.

"It happened after the Newtown shooting, it happens after any event like this particularly when it's big news", says Vik Solem, President of MEI Security in Stoughton.

Monroe County Director of Schools Tim Blankenship said a student reported that another student had a "fake gun or a BB gun" at Sequoyah Friday morning. We visited every classroom and are working to identify all parties who are the source of the threat. The safety of our students and staff are second to none, and as a district we will do whatever we can to protect them at any cost. This phone line has been installed to receive calls 24 hours a day from students, parents, or concerned citizens who have information about potentially unsafe activity on school grounds or school-related activities. We feel really good about that and we've increased the visibility of the school resource officer before and after school. "To know that you've got a granddaughter that could be in danger".

Arkansas City police are continuing their investigation.

In Chesapeake, police confirmed they've received reports of a social media threat directed at Western Branch High School for Tuesday.

In Southampton County, the Sheriff's Office said it was investigating a threat made Sunday night. However, Bryum said SPD takes all threats seriously.

Cross Creek sent out a message to parents informing them of the situation.

Additional police officers were on patrol in the area near the school.

The alleged threats came days after a 19-year-old gunman opened fire February 14 at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Broward County, Florida, killing 17 people. If you have concerns or hear rumors, please do not hesitate to notify school officials.

"We always reflect on what we are doing to make sure we are doing everything possible to keep our students and staff safe".
