WRAY, Colo. — School was canceled Thursday in the Eastern Colorado town of Wray after a social media posting that allegedly threatened an imminent school shooting, police said.
The Wray Police Department was notified Wednesday of a posting on Yik Yak, an app that allows users to anonymously send messages within their current geographic area. The details of the message were not released, but police and Wray School District administrators opted to cancel classes.
“While we have no credible evidence to pinpoint a specific location or people targeted, we at the Wray Police Department take statements like the ones posted on YIK YAK seriously and as such a thorough search is being conducted and an active investigation is ongoing at this time,” the department said in a statement.
Rumors on social media indicated that the threat described an attack of some kind.
