LCSO Investigates Social Media Threat to Loudoun Schools

The Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office continues to investigate a Snapchat screenshot with rumored threats towards schools throughout Loudoun County.

Throughout Tuesday evening, as the post was shared on social media, new schools were added to the Snapchat screenshot to be part of the threat of a shooting and only referenced third party information.

At this time, the LCSO has found no evidence that lends credibility to any threats, but the screenshot is possibly related to a rumored threat at Broad Run High School earlier this week. That threat was determined to be non-credible.

As the investigation continues and out of an abundance of caution, parents can expect extra patrols from LCSO during school hours on September 11 due to the social media post.

Please be assured that the LCSO and Loudoun County Public Schools take all threats seriously and we will thoroughly investigate any threats made against our schools and our children.

We will continue to provide an update on this situation as additional information is available.
