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.

    Clouds? Something gross? Where do you get these pictures? Will this be on the test?
    I agree with Wendy C.

  • This was crazy today. I attend HHS as a junior, and they didn’t tell us ANYTHING! We were having to go around blind all day for a senior prank? I am ashamed of my class mate, but even more at my educators. The “rumor” was told FRIDAY and yet they didn’t cancel school or notify the parents? How much common sense is required to speak up? I realize that we the students need our education, but at what point do you draw a line where we don’t want another Sandy Hook Elementary incident? Testing can be rescheduled, our lives can’t. Yes, this time it was a joke, But what about next time?

  • Not cool at all. I got 2 kids there and. more info is what i want to see. I know its an open investigation but come on hcso give us parents some relief. Only One Student SHOULD have the source to any further information?? Come on! Kids talk smack and it spreads like wild fires. They need to speak with other students and staff..they should Install a metal detector and protect are kids! What about all those cameras?? If they think that one student is their source i think thats a poor choice. Are they tracking that students past? Behavior habits? Is this the student who made the threat or just one who might have info and now guards are let down….

  • So HHS- you still wanna tell us all is fine? Kids make threats when they don’t want to take tests?
