Authorities are warning residents about false online threats to schools after the deadly shooting at The Covenant School.
The Bedford County Sheriff’s Department says the threat on Wednesday was a stock photo from the internet that references “CHS” as a possible target. This same image was used in another state’s viral social media post a few years ago. The department states that they take every threat against our schools seriously and will continue to work with the school system on this matter.
Warren County Schools also notified families about rumors of a threat against Warren County High School on Wednesday.
Local law enforcement deemed these threats non-credible and asked students to continue to report any threats seen on social media.
