School received ‘unsubstantiated’ threats before shooting


The Maryland high school where a gunman shot two students Tuesday morning was the subject of threats last month that were deemed “unsubstantiated,” according to a report.

Great Mills High School Principal Dr. Jake Heibel said school officials interviewed two students who were overheard mentioning a school shooting but found they posed no threat, according to local news site The Bay net.

Another threat circulated on Snapchat, which was also investigated.

“Law enforcement was contacted and an investigation was conducted, which included interviews with students and parents to determine the validity of the potential threat,” Heibel wrote in a letter to parents. “The threat to Great Mills High School has not been validated at this time.”

Still, officials beefed up security at the school.

Two Great Mills students were injured Tuesday after a gunman fired shots into a hallway. The shooter, who was also a student at the school, exchanged gunfire with a school resource officer and later died at a hospital, officials said.
