Shooting threat determined ‘not credible’ by CCSPD

Concord Community Schools Police Department officers on Friday, Nov. 16, responded to a report about a possible shooting threat. After a thorough investigation, officers determined it was not a credible threat.

Shortly after 1 p.m. Friday, two Concord Junior High School students reported to a teacher at the school that they overheard another student make a statement about bringing a gun to school on Monday.

The Concord Community Schools Police Department was immediately contacted and an investigation was started.

During the investigation it was determined that the student did make the statement, but that it was not a credible threat.

In accordance with district protocols, the student was transported home by Concord Community Schools Police Department officers and a home visit was conducted.

Concord Community Schools would like to thank the Concord Junior High School students and staff for being proactive and promptly reporting the incident. Safety protocols were followed throughout the incident.

“If you see or hear something, say something. Great job to our students who reported what they heard. Safety is everyone’s job,” Superintendent John Trout said. “We thank the Concord Community Schools Police Department for handling this matter swiftly, securely, and in accordance with our school safety protocols.”
