It was an anonymous post on social media that led to additional security measures at all Butler School District buildings on Wednesday.
Butler Township Police Lt. Matthew Pearson said the post was made on an app that specifically keeps the user anonymous. The threat was vague and warned of a “school shooting” but did not give details or a specific school.
Extra officers were placed at all school buildings and every student went through a metal detector.
Lt. Pearson said detectives are working to identify the person who made that post.
