PITTSBURGH — A reported shooting threat has Mt. Lebanon High School increasing its police presence, according to a letter from the school’s principal.
Tips were sent into Safe2Say Something about rumors circulating on social media that a high school student was going to “shoot up the school,” Principal Joel Thompson said in the letter to high school families.
The investigation has not found anything to substantiate the threat, according to Thompson.
“Out of an abundance of caution, the Mt. Lebanon Police Department will have an increased presence in and around the High School for the next several days. Additionally, we have advised the staff of the situation, asking them to immediately report any information they may hear or any out-of-the-ordinary student behavior, and be especially visible in the hallways during the change of class, hall/café duty, etc.,” the letter said.
Anyone who might have information that substantiates the rumored threat is asked to contact the Mt. Lebanon Police Department or the high school administration.
