ROOSEVELT, Utah, Oct. 16, 2019 (Gephardt Daily) — There is an increased law enforcement presence in Roosevelt Wednesday morning after an alleged threat of a gun at Union High School.
“Early this morning, district officials were made aware of an alleged threat that a Union High School student planned to bring a gun to school today,” said a Facebook post from Duchesne County School District. “The threat was reported to have been made via Snapchat. The district was not able to verify the credibility of the threat, but responds to all threats of this nature as though they were serious.”
Union High School, at 850 E. Lagoon St., has not been placed on lockdown, but there is a heightened law enforcement presence at the school and multiple students are being interviewed in connection with these events, the post said. Because all those involved are minors, no names are being released.
“Law enforcement will remain present throughout the school day and the district will immediately inform the public of any change in the status of the situation,” the post added.
Gephardt Daily will have more on this developing story as information is made available.
