Rumors spread in Princeton about a shooting threat

Posted by wlpo on September 20, 2016

Police presence is ramped up at Logan Junior High in Princeton.

The Princeton Police Department put out a message saying they have been working on an investigation into a possible forthcoming shooting at the school. Officers have been interviewing but they say “at this point, there is no validity to any such threat, other than hearsay.” The police department message goes on to say “the police have nothing to indicate that such a threat even existed, other than someone saying they heard something.”

Rumors of a shooting started swirling on social media Monday night. That prompted some parents to keep their children home Tuesday.

If you have information about the alleged threat, call the Princeton P.D. at 872-2351.
