PRINCE GEORGE’S COUNTY, Md. – Prince George’s County police increased their presence at three schools early Wednesday morning following threats made by email over the holiday break.
According to police, they are investigating threats at Prince George’s County Public Schools (PGCPS) including William Wirt Middle School, Bladensburg High School, and Parkdale High School.
School district officials told the press earlier today that, police had identified the person behind the threats, and that they do not seem to be credible.
Extra officers were at the schools on Wednesday as a precaution.
Earlier in the day, Hyattsville Middle school was on total lockdown for a period of time following rumors of a person with a gun and a car jacking.
Several police cars were on the premises and a Helicopter was seen hovering in the vicinity of the school as police investigated the reports.
The reports of a gun man inside the school ended up being unfounded, one parent say.
No injuries were reported and everyone is safe.
