A rumor on social media concerning a threat of violence at a Mercer County school was unfounded, State Police said.
Concerned parents of students at Pike View High School and Middle School in Mercer County went to the State Police detachment in Princeton Sunday to report a threatening Facebook post circulating among students, said Sgt. Michael Baylous, State Police spokesman.
The parents were concerned because they believed the post could have made reference to a shooting or similar event at the school on Monday or Tuesday.
Sgt. J. Centeno spoke with school officials, visited the school and talked to several students about the post. Centeno determined it had been taken out of context and there was no actual threat.
