PHENIX CITY, Ala. (WTVM) - The Phenix City Police Department investigated an alleged shooting threat at Central High School.

On August 18, Phenix City police investigates several social media posts that were concerned with rumors of possible “dress code protests” and a shooting that would take place at Central Freshman Academy and Central High School.

The threat was made on social media. According to Cheryl Tally, the Administrative Assistant to the Superintendent of Phenix City Schools, says all students and staff are safe.

According to Phenix City police, the alleged post was unsubstantiated and no credible evidence led Phenix City School Board members or law enforcement to believe the rumor had merit. As a safety precaution, during the course of the investigation, an added presence of law enforcement was encouraged at CHS and CFA to assist the parents who visited the campus concerned with the welfare of their children.

The Phenix City Police Department does ask if you have knowledge of anyone that might start such rumors or post social media threats of this nature to please report it to the Phenix City Police Department.
