TPD investigating vague social media threat

TOLEDO, OH (WTOL) -

Toledo police are investigating a social media threat that has been circulating around local school districts and other districts in the nation.

The threat is directed towards "SHS."

Police say they are unsure if the threat came from the local area, but believe it is likely a hoax. 

Police say SHS could be any high school in the United States starting with "S." 

They say they are taking the threat seriously and are actively tracing its origin. 

At this time, they say there is no credible threat to local schools.

Sylvania Schools superintendent Adam Fineske released a statement regarding the threat, saying that the district is open on time today and working with the Sylvania Police Department to ensure student safety.
