The Independence County Sheriff’s Office has posted a statement on their Facebook page in regards to reports of an individual making school threats. One key takeaway from the statement to note:
99% of the rumors that have been decimated regarding this incident are false and should be treated as such unless further information is released by this department regarding this case. At no point since this matter was dealt with has there been any further threat towards students, faculty, or family members of any school district in Independence County.
