Police Investigating Threat at High School

Student heard peer make reference about committing Sandy Hook-type situation

Police in Enfield, Connecticut, are at Enfield High School investigating a threat reported by another student.

While school officials initially said the school was locked down, the Enfield Superintendent's Office and Enfield Police Chief Carl Sferrazza said the school was not put in lock down.

A student heard a peer make a reference about committing a Sandy Hook-type situation at the high school Tuesday and told another student, who reported it to school officials. It is not clear when the initial comment was made.

Police said that they take all threats like this very seriously and are investigating. Officers have identified the student accused of making the comment and will question the person.

School officials and police said no one is in danger.

Fifteen parents came to the school to take their kids home. It is unclear whether an alert has gone home to parents or how they learned about it.
