The photo below was included in a press release from a police agency in California. Unfortunately this photo was shared locally, implying “MHS” was Delaware’s Milford High School. Milford Police and administrative officials at Milford High School launched an overnight investigation to determine the credibility of the threat, and Milford High School Principal Kelly Green sent a recorded telephone message to parents informing them of the threat and also the increased police presence at the school for Thursday. A short time later, a second message was sent to let parents know the threat was for Milford High School in California.
Milford Police would like to thank the numerous people who made them aware of the threat and the one Facebook follower who alerted them to this specific news release:
Marysville Police Department was recently made aware of a message scrawled on a bathroom wall at Marysville High School that appears to be either a warning, orthreatening in nature.
The Police Department does not yet know the author of the message but is actively investigating the circumstances.
