Source of Thayer Central school shooting threat ‘not up to par with the state and not credible’
HEBRON, Nebraska (Nebraska) — Authorities have identified the source of the threat posed by the Thayer Public Schools in Hebron.
“The source has been determined to be out of state, untrustworthy, and in no way currently associated with Thayer Central Public Schools,” the school for families said in a statement Wednesday.
This week the school was closed for the duration of the investigation. A threat of a potential school shooting was made against the school via social media on Friday afternoon.
Thayer Central Superintendent Randy Page said the closure was due to precautionary measures.
Investigators from the Nebraska State Patrol’s Tech Crime Unit identified the source of the threat and identified the suspect. NSP said the suspect was in New Mexico and NSP is now working with New Mexico authorities on the case.
Thayer Central Public Schools will reopen on Thursday for a regular school day.
“Advisors will arrive tomorrow for any staff or students who need support in processing the events of the last few days,” the school said in a statement. “Law enforcement will be present on our campus in the coming days when this investigation is completed.
The investigation is ongoing.
