The Pinellas Park Police Department said additional officers will be assigned to Pinellas Park High and Morgan Fitzgerald Middle schools.
PINELLAS PARK – Officers are aware of and are investigating a social media posting that threatened a possible school shooting, according to the Pinellas Park Police Department.
The posting was made on Snapchat sometime Friday (Feb. 16) evening. It threatened a possible school shooting that would take place Tuesday (Feb. 20). Police said the post also advised students not to come to school. While the post did not name a school specifically, it was alleged that the threat had been written on a bathroom wall of Pinellas Park High School, 6305 118th Ave. N.
Pinellas Park police school resource officers and school officials are aware of the social media post. Pinellas Park police said the department will continue to have an increased presence at all schools in the city as has been done since the school shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School last Wednesday (Feb. 14).
Beginning Monday (Feb. 19), additional officers will be at Pinellas Park High School and Morgan Fitzgerald Middle School, which is located directly across the street.
At this point, police said they have no information to substantiate the credibility of the threat; however they are taking these actions to ensure the safety of all students and staff at the schools.
