FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WOWO): A threat on social media led to a scare for some parents of Fort Wayne Community Schools students this morning.
A threat against a school referred to “SHS” had some worrying that it was a reference to a Fort Wayne school, possibly South Side High School or Snyder High School, but the district announced on Twitter this morning that it was actually referencing a school in Ohio.
We are aware of social media posts regarding a threat against “SHS.” We have worked closely with police, and it has been determined this is referencing a school in Ohio, not in Fort Wayne. Nevertheless, we will be extra vigilant today with the assistance of local law enforcement.

That being said, the district announced it’s working with police and attempting to be “extra vigilant”, just in case.
It’s the second time this week a post on social media has led to local fears, as a post made about about Huntington High School Monday night turned out to be referring to a school in Kentucky, not Indiana.
