PGCPS teens threaten mass shooting at PGCPS schools.

The Prince George’s County Police Department will be stationing additional officers at schools Monday after a threat circulated on social media over the weekend.

Police said officers would be sent to Bladensburg High School, Charles H. Flowers High School, William Wirt Middle School and Kenmoore Middle School out of an “abundance of caution” in response to a threat naming those schools.

The threat appeared to hint at a shooting attack on teachers and students at several Prince George’s County Schools and was shared on a number of social media platforms.

 Prince George’s County Schools tweeted Sunday that they were aware of the threat and that law enforcement was investigating. Police later confirmed that additional police would be present at schools out of an abundance of caution.

A spokeswoman for the school system declined to provide further details when reached by phone Sunday.

Police said other officers would periodically visit county schools not named in the threat.

Elizabeth Seton High School, a private school near Bladensburg High School, will be closed Monday due to the threat, the school’s president Sister Ellen Marie Hagar told the press on Sunday.

Part of the post causing anxiety was shared on facebook by Mr. Charles Dash Payne to alert the public in good faith. “If you see something, say something!” ….and that’s what he did. We Thank him for that.
