Threat rumors lead to more security at 2 Colorado schools

February 16, 2018

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (AP) — Security has been increased at two high schools in Colorado Springs after rumors of threats spread on social media.

Police believe the rumors may be a response to the school shooting in Florida.

KKTV reports that representatives of the two school districts involved say the threats haven’t been deemed credible but extra security and police officers have been assigned to Harrison and Widefield high schools on Friday.

Harrison High School is also postponing a school pep assembly.
