Threat Made at Local High School
A note on a bathroom floor at a local high school leads to that school being locked down for safety. The Oxford Police Department was notified this morning at nearly 10:00AM by Oxford High School administration of an anonymously hand written note stating “there would be a shooting today.” The Oxford Police Department sent officers to the high school to assist the school student services coordinator in the search of the school along with K-9 units. The school
was cleared before noon and the note was taken to Oxford’s forensic unit for examination. No evidence of a threat was discovered. Additional police personnel were on the
scene for the rest of the day.
