DARIEN, Conn. — A brief lockdown at Darien High School was lifted Friday afternoon after police determined that a threat written on a bathroom wall unfounded, the Darien Times reported.
Darien Police responded twice Friday to the high school — for for a fire alarm and then after the threat was found written on the bathroom wall, the Times said.
The note read: “Gonna shoot the school Per. 6. B ready,” police told the Darien Times.
Students were released from a controlled lockdown after 20 minutes and an all-clear from police, the Times said.
This was the second police response this week at Darien High. On Wednesday, police investigated rumors of a threat found on a bathroom wall that turned out to be false, police said.
School officials had learned of a rumor that a message saying, "Do not come to school on 3/23" had been written on a bathroom boy's bathroom wall. All the bathrooms in the school were searched, but the message was not found anywhere.
Administration and police officials conducted a full investigation into the rumors and interviewed a number of students, but determined that the rumor was unfounded.
