Lockdown lifted at Linden High School following social media post
A lockdown at Linden High School was lifted following a series of threatening social media posts made Tuesday.
The threatening posts started around 8 a.m. The person involved made the threats on an Instagram account, saying he would shoot up the school and wanted to see students suffer.
The author also wrote, "I'm already inside the building." The account featured a picture of a gun.
The school was put on lockdown for several hours while police investigated. By the afternoon, the lockdown was lifted and the school was deemed safe.
After-school activities were scheduled to continue because police said there was no credible threat to the student body.
Police did not immediately say if they identified the person who was posting the threats or if any arrests were made.
The Instagram account that posted the threatening messages was still active as of Tuesday evening.
