Police are investigating a message on a high school bathroom wall that threatened a mass shooting this morning, April 18.
The ominous message, written in red marker, was discovered at Skyview High School in Nampa, Idaho, on Thursday, April 13, and said that the attack would take place on April 18 at 10:24 A.M.
Sgt. Jason Cantrell of the School Resource Officer Division said the Nampa Police Department is working with the district to investigate and that the police department will also provide extra security at the high school on Tuesday.
The note reads:
‘School will be shot up at 4-18-17 at 10.24am There will be a gang of 17 students doing this. They will target all the teachers and administrators first, then they will kill the students one by one.’
‘If 911 is called, all hell will break loose. If you want to survive… Stay home!’
Furthermore, the threat includes the name of a student who is allegedly involved in the planned shooting. Neither the Nampa Police nor Skyview High School have confirmed whether that student had anything to do with the message or the planned attack.
In a letter sent to parents Friday, Skyview Principal Will Barber wrote the school is aware of the treat, and is working closely with police to make sure students are safe.
“The well-being and safety of the school, our students, and staff is the priority of the Nampa School District and the Nampa Police Department,” Barber wrote.
“We appreciate those who have called to make sure we know about the situation and encourage you to always keep us in the loop if you see or hear anything that concerns you.”
Anyone with information is being asked to contact the Nampa Police Department.
