DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) — Two high schools in the Miami Valley were closed Tuesday after false calls were made for an active shooter.
The officers were called to Thurgood Marshall High School in connection with the incident, according to Dayton police. Montgomery County Regional Dispatch said reports allegedly claimed that the active shooter was on campus.
The students hid in place at approximately 12:04 p.m. and were released at 12:15 p.m. after officers confirmed there was no threat.
On the same day, the officers were called to Kenton Ridge High School in Springfield. According to the school’s email, the students fled the scene after the school received a phone call stating a possible active shooter.
The Clark County Sheriff’s Office responded and confirmed that the call was a hoax.
Kenton Ridge High School is currently asking parents not to show up to school as police officers are still investigating.
