Rumors spread on social media of planned school shootings at Anne Arundel County public schools have all been investigated and found to be not credible, police said at a press conference on Wednesday.
Lt. J.D. Batten, who is charge of school security, said some shooting rumors have come from students saying they heard it from others.
He said a student at an Anne Arundel County school texted a friend: "Don't go to school on Friday because I heard there was going to be a shooting."
Within a few hours, Anne Arundel County police officers were interviewing the student, asking her where she heard the information.
"As it turned out, it was just, 'I heard from somebody else a rumor that this was going to happen,' so it was completely unfounded," Batten said.
