OXFORD, Miss. (WTVA) - The Lafayette County School District dealt with a second threat Thursday, two days after the first threat was found.
According to the Lafayette County Sheriff’s Department, an official with Lafayette County Schools reported Thursday morning that some students had received a message reading, “I am going to bomb all the Lafayette Schools today. Be careful and watch your back.”
Deputies, along with other local law enforcement agencies, responded and searched the school and its campus. Students were allowed to return to their scheduled classes shortly before noon, the school district announced.
Since the first threat was reported Tuesday, there has been an increase in law enforcement presence as a precautionary measure.
The first threat was found written on a bathroom stall, making threats for Thursday, the sheriff’s department confirmed Tuesday evening.
