Police: High school threat posed no cred­i­ble dan­ger

The Washington Times Daily - - METRO -

In­ves­ti­ga­tors say a school shoot­ing threat posted on so­cial me­dia posed no cred­i­ble dan­ger for Clarksburg High School in Mont­gomery County.

Clarksburg High School of­fi­cials sent out a mes­sage Sun­day evening via Twit­ter about a po­ten­tial threat to the school posted on In­sta­gram. WRC-TV re­ported that the threat said, in part, “I can shoot up Clarksburg High School bet­ter than Columbine.”

The post was later re­moved. Mont­gomery County Police Capt. Paul Starks says schools are han­dling the dis­ci­plinary ac­tions. He says the 15-year-old stu­dent who made the post “ex­pressed re­morse” for his ac­tions.
