Shorewood High School on alert after social media threat

We have been working with the Bulloch County Sheriffs Office and have confirmed that the post was in another state.

He says that the likely location the threat was aimed at was Springfield High School in Ohio.

The only Springfield High School actually located in a town named Springfield, Ohio is 45 miles west of Columbus.

A statement on the Springfield district's website said anyone involved in making a threat, "will face serious disciplinary action and additional consequences to the maximum extent of the law". "We are confident at this time that the staff and students at Sterling High School and all our schools are safe".

The Snapchat post insinuating a school shooting was reported to the Salinas Police Department, and officers traced the account to a phone of a Salinas resident.

It stated, "The Springfield City School District received information about a potential threat to Springfield High School through social media". The link: Whoever posted the threat targeted "SHS".

But the same threat sent school districts and law enforcement nationwide into a brief frenzy of concern, all due to the use of three letters. School will be in session on Thursday, February 22.

"We will hold someone accountable", she said. As always, please remember, If you see something, say something. The incident remains under investigation. There is NO CREDIBLE THREAT to Sheldon HS.

"It depends on the threat, is this person easily identifiable?"

The advent of social media is bringing more and more threats to light, according to Anderson. It's still unclear where this post actually came from.
