Threats questioned at Lexington High School


Both the Lexington Police Department and school administrators are currently investigating messages written on bathroom walls possibly  threatening an explosion at the school.

The first one occurred Monday about 10:30 a.m. in a women’s restroom at the high school, according to Lexington Assistant Chief of Police Ronnie Johnson.

Superintendent Chad Hall thinks the Tuesday incident was a copycat.

Hall said on the incident Tuesday, Lexington Police utilized some assessment protocols. Hall said he is convinced the Tuesday message was not credible.

Hall issued this statement: “Unfortunately, it has been necessary for Lexington High School to consider the credibility of recent graffiti messages of a threatening nature. LPS will work diligently to maintain the balance between safety and a productive learning environment. Persons found responsible for disrupting either will be held accountable to the fullest extent of the law. Any related information should be reported to school administration or the Lexington Police Department.”

No one was injured and no damage was inflicted on school property.
