Dayton Public Schools said on social media On Tuesday, when Thurgood Marshall High School was placed in a short-term “shelter in place” situation for approximately 11 minutes on Tuesday afternoon following a false 911 call reporting a shooting at the school.
The police responded immediately and discovered that the call was a hoax.
During a fake 911 call to the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office, the caller said that a white student brought a gun into the school and shot and killed four students.
Shelter-in-place meant that students and staff were ordered to stay in classrooms while police ransacked the school. Shelter in place began at 12:04 p.m. and was removed at 12:15 p.m.
Also Tuesday, Clark County sheriff’s deputies responded to Kenton Ridge High School after a false report of a shooting.
