Shelbyville Central High School threat


A threat against Shelbyville Central High School was posted Saturday afternoon on Snapchat, and authorities are attempting to track the source.

“Me and a couple of my friends have been bullied for so long and we can’t deal with it anymore,” the poster claimed. “We plan on shooting up Central High School around 10 to 11 am (heart emoji). We will shoot anyone on sight going for around 5-10 students and 5 administrators.”

 A Facebook post by the Bedford County Sheriff’s Office said Harris Middle School has also been threatened.

“Someone or ones are saying they are going to shoot some students and faculty Tuesday. We are trying to find out who they are right now,” Sheriff Austin Swing said.

“There will be a strong presence of law enforcement at Central and Harris on Tuesday,” the BCSO’s post said. “If you have any information regarding the threat please contact the BCSO. (931) 684-3232.”

“We are also aware of the threats and will be working with the sheriff’s department in an effort to identify the person responsible,” Deputy Chief Brian Crews of the Shelbyville Police Department said. “We will also provide extra patrol throughout the upcoming week.”
Students have been out of school on fall break and return Tuesday.
School Resource Officers in Shelbyville are affiliated with and overseen by the sheriff’s office.
