The police department was notified at 9:55 am by Oxford High School administration of an anonymously hand written note stating “there would be a shooting today.” This note was found on a bathroom floor. As with any threat made the high school was placed on lockdown. We sent officers to the high school to assist our school resource officer in a search of the school along with our K-9 units. The school was cleared. The notes have been taken by our forensics unit for examination. Your children are safe, and as a precautionary measure we will have additional police personnel on scene for the rest of the day. As I have said we take these situations extremely serious. And our number one commitment is our children’s safety.
We’ll have additional information as it becomes available.
