SOMERS, Conn. (AP) — Police are being assigned to schools in Somers, Connecticut after an anonymous threat was posted online.
Officials say the threat was made over the Yik Yak app and suggested a school shooting. Authorities did not release the text of the threat.
The original post was removed and police said they don’t know when it was made. Police posted a counter-measure on the social media app alerting followers to a school shooting threat.
Last December, East Lyme police worked with the FBI to solve a vague online threat in which someone posted that “East Lyme better get ready for a hail of bullets.” A suspect was arrested days later.
