There have been no confirmed threats against schools by local police. However, in the wake of last Friday’s shootings in Connecticut, all possibilities are being taken seriously.
In Davie, Western High School took the step of banning backpacks for the rest of the week. The ban came after rumors of a shooting planned for the school on Friday began to percolate amongst the student body.
According to Davie Police, they do not know who may have made the threat and are looking into whether the threat metastasized from social media.
