BRYAN, Texas – The Bryan Police Department is raising awareness of threats being made towards area high schools, which are circulating social media.

The department posted on social media that it is actively investigating these threats, which are not believed to be credible. Investigations into these threats have led to the belief that they are hoaxes – very similar to other hoaxes which have appeared on social media across the nation ever since the Michigan school shooting from last week.

The department says it takes any threats such as these seriously, and will work to ensure the safety of the community. There were extra officers at high school campuses on Thursday.

Those who are found to be responsible are facing serious criminal charges, including Terroristic Threat, according to the department.
