Police presence after gun violence threat at Conn. school | #schoolsaftey


SOUTHINGTON, Conn. — Police have determined a “threat of gun violence” targeting Southington High School on Thursday was unsubstantiated.

The high school received a call that threatened gun violence inside the school. The call came from an out-of-state number, according to police.

With assistance from state and federal agencies, Southington police determined that the threat was “unsubstantiated.”

Police will continue their presence at the schools in town for the rest of the day. Police are also working with the Southington Board of Education.

Southington police said investigators will continue working on this case.

Meanwhile, Middletown police officers are also boosting patrols around the city, but this comes after the mass shooting in Maine where at least 16 people were killed. Officers in Middletown will be conducting local schools and businesses throughout the day “to ensure the safety of our students and residents.”

“While we do not have any information to suggest our community is in danger, we will take every step to ensure their safety,” Middletown police said.
