Police say they are investigating a reported threat to Troy High made on social media, but classes are being held
FULLERTON — Police have been investigating on Thursday, Feb. 1, a purported threat to Troy High School made throughout a group chat amongst college students on Instagram Live.
A Troy High School scholar referred to as police about 10 p.m. Wednesday, Jan. 31, and reported that an unknown particular person started messaging the group of scholars throughout their chat, indicating “violence” in opposition to the varsity on Thursday, Fullerton police Sgt. Jon Radus mentioned.
Police have been working to determine who made the threat and whether or not it was viable, Radus mentioned. As of late Thursday morning, investigators had not come throughout any proof that may point out the threat is credible, he mentioned, but harassed police and Fullerton Joint Union High School District officers have been taking the threat critically.
Police had a bigger presence on campus Thursday, but classes in any other case proceeded as common, Radus mentioned.
The scholar who referred to as police was hailed as “courageous,” and officers encourage anybody to name authorities at any time when they see or hear one thing suspicious, Radus mentioned.
In February, one other Troy scholar was applauded after alerting officers when two male college students have been overheard discussing plans to “shoot up” the varsity. No weapons have been discovered on the time.
A message left with college district officers was not instantly returned.
Anyone who would possibly know one thing in regards to the threat was requested to name police at 714-738-3156. Or, Orange County Crime Stoppers accepts nameless suggestions at 855-TIP-OCCS.
