PLATTEVILLE, Wis. (AP) — Police say a perceived threat that prompted the closure of schools in Platteville did not involve a social media post about a potential active shooter, as previously reported.

Authorities tell WKOW-TV and WISC-TV that the incident involved a person who was threatening to harm himself, close to the high school.

Police didn’t find the person but said they did recover weapons.

Superintendent Connie Valenza says officials canceled classes to ensure student safety.
