BALTIMORE (WJZ) — Aberdeen Middle School was on a modified lock Tuesday down after a “general threat” was posted on social media, according to police.
Aberdeen Police have since said the threat was determined to be “non-credible.”
Investigators say an unknown person sent a message to several students through a new social media app called “Sarahah.” Police found out about the threat around 7:30 a.m.
Harford County schools spokeswoman Lindsay B. Bilodeau said “all appropriate actions were taken immediately,” including a modified lock down that allowed normal school activities to continue, but limited access to the building and prevented students from going outside.
Anyone with information of who may have sent this threat to students is urged to contact Detective D. Testerman or SRO J. Neidig at 410-272-2121.
