COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. - Authorities increased security at Cheyenne Mountain High School Friday due to a credible threat.
Classes continued on a normal schedule Friday despite the threat.
In an email issued to parents Thursday night, the district said a student was reported to administrators after making direct verbal threats of shooting a peer after a lunchroom altercation.
The student who made the threat then posted two social media posts, including one with a firearm. This led CMHS to contact Springs Police and suspend the student.
The email states that CMHS will continue to maintain controlled accesses and secured perimeters in addition to security personnel on all of the campuses moving forward. CMHS asked CSPD to help with increased security on Friday to help ease tensions.
KRDO is continuing to gather more information and will bring you updates.
