Around 9:40 p.m. on Wednesday night, the verified CCSD twitter account sent out a series of tweets warning students and parents of shooting threats against multiple school districts in five states, with the CCSD being one of them.

A corresponding message spread throughout Snapchat late last night targeting Centennial High School specifically with the message, “We shooting up your school tomorrow no one safe. Every school in Las Vegas getting blew up.”

In response, the CCSD twitter account acknowledged the interaction and stated that they did not believe the threat to be credible.

Here is the initial interaction targeting Centennial High School over Snapchat.

As of 6:20 a.m. on Thursday, October 5, a tweet from the CCSD stated, “School police and local law have detained a suspect in relation to the threats.

Local sources have attempted to contact the number of which the threats originated, but the phone line had been cut and is no longer active.

Other schools that have been reportedly threatened in the past five days include Redwood High School in California, Dysart High School in Arizona, Davenport North High School in Iowa, and Quincy High School in Massachusetts. (sources: http://qctimes.com/news/local/as-north-students-opt-to-stay-home-shooting-threat-deemed/article_df6f49b1-ced0-5b27-bbc0-e31a0666238c.amp.html – http://boston.cbslocal.com/2017/10/04/las-vegas-shooting-quincy-school-threat/amp/ – http://abc7news.com/amp/police-investigate-shooting-threat-at-larkspurs-redwood-high-school/2467727/ – http://amp.abc15.com/2367420331/dysart-high-school-threats-do-not-appear-credible-police-say.html)

Possible threats extended to two East Bay high schools via graffiti on a footbridge, with “Shooting at MV and SRV 10/3” which referenced Monte Vista and San Ramon Valley High School. (source: http://www.eastbaytimes.com/2017/10/02/danville-police-chief-shooting-threat-aimed-at-high-schools-not-credible/amp/)

Centennial High School and Quincy High School were the only schools to be directly targeted over Snapchat, but there is no discernible relation between any of the aforementioned threats.

Many parents and students have stayed home from school following the threats, as both Nevada and the nation are still recovering from the aftermath of the worst shooting in modern U.S. history which left 58 dead and hundreds injured on the Las Vegas Strip less thank a week ago.

UPDATE: 18-year old Toni Strickland, who attends Centennial, has been confirmed as the one to send the threatening messages over Snapchat. She is in custody.

We’ll continue to update this article as more information becomes available.
