Law Enforcement Investigate Social Media Threat Against Independence Friday

Law enforcement was at Independence High School Friday investigating a social media threat.

Independence High School Principal Dr. Nikki Patton alerted the community via Facebook about the social media threat Friday morning.

The threat against Independence High School was similar to a threat received in Rutherford County, Dr. Patton wrote on Facebook.

Law enforcement determined the threat was not credible, Dr. Patton wrote on Facebook.

“We remain committed to prosecuting all school related threats,” Dr. Patton added. She also urged parents to talk to their kids about the consequences of making these types of threats and to encourage their kids to say something if they see something.
