You kids may have heard a rumor about a school threat- what YOU need to know

From Tampa Bay Times Monday:

Dozens of parents at Lakewood High and, to a lesser extent, Pinellas Park High, removed their children from the campuses early Monday amid unsubstantiated threats that a shooter planned to kill “at least 30 people,” all of whom would be Black.

Although the social media message that circulated late Sunday did not name a school, at least one person who circulated it wrote that the activity was “supposed to be going on at Lakewood or Pinellas Park.”

Alerted to the concerns by a student, the Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office investigated and determined the threat did not originate in Florida and did not appear credible.
