Bullhead City, Arizona: The Bullhead City Police Department in investigating threatening comment against Mohave High School that was posted onto Snapchat on Wednesday, January 13th, 2021.
A parent of a student of Mohave High School sent this picture to ZachNews of that threat that was posted.
ZachNews contacted the Bullhead City Police Department to verify if there was any threat on the school, which the police department confirmed that they are investigating, and when asked if the police department needed a copy of the picture ZachNews received, the Bullhead City Police Department said they already have a copy of the posted threat.
According to the Bullhead City Police Department, “Bullhead City Police are conducting extra patrols at Mohave High School for precautionary measures after receiving a report of a possible threat. Today at around 2 p.m., it was reported that a male juvenile posted a threatening comment against Mohave High School on Snapchat. Contrary to rumors, the school is NOT on lockdown. The Bullhead City Police Department takes these matters very seriously. The reported threat is actively being investigated.”
Moments ago, the Bullhead City Police Department add, “This threat is being handled as a priority. The police department’s active investigation has confirmed that the suspect who posted the threat on social media is out of state.”
The Colorado River Schools posted this statement following the Bullhead City Police Department post saying, “Please see the information below from Bullhead City PD. There are many unfounded rumors already circulating on social media. The school, students and faculty are safe. Students were briefly held in place for a few minutes while it was determined that it was safe for business to continue as usual. As the police indicate below, there was NOT a lockdown. Students will be dismissed at the usual time. The Bullhead PD investigation continues. This is another opportunity for parents to discuss with their children of all ages the importance of responsible social media posts, and the consequences of irresponsible social media posts.”
More information is still coming into ZachNews.
