Threat Against Hernando High Prompts Heightened Security – UPDATE
BROOKSVILLE – RNRF received numerous inquiries from concerned citizens this morning, regarding the increased police presence around Hernando High School.
Speculation that the school is on lock-down is untrue, according to School Officials; however, there were unconfirmed reports of a potential violent threat, according to our sources.
Last night, RNRF received information that someone threatened to “shoot up” the school, but officials have not commented on that threat at this time. It is unknown if the threat is well-founded or if an investigation is underway.
UPDATE: 12:48 PM – According to spokesperson Eric Williams with the Hernando County School District, “The threat has been isolated to a single student and the Hernando County Sheriff’s Office is conducting an investigation. They should be the source of any information related to any ongoing investigations. As it stands currently, HHS and all students there are safe and secure and any potential threats are being addressed by law enforcement officials.
UPDATE: 2:12 PM – The Sheriff’s Office is now reporting that the incident was related to a teenage prank. The “threat” was actually a link posted on social media, which was directed to a pornographic site.
