From the Aberdeen Police Department:
Members of the Aberdeen Police Department investigated a potential threat at the Aberdeen High School and Aberdeen Middle School today. Information was received that there may be a large fight involving students from both schools at dismissal time. There was also vague information that some students may be carrying weapons to school. Although the threats were not deemed credible they were immediately investigated.
School administrators were notified and Detectives with the Aberdeen Police Department interviewed students in an attempt to obtain credible information. The schools were placed on lock down and the Aberdeen Police Department canine unit as well as a canine unit from the Aberdeen Proving Ground worked together to scan both schools for any weapons. None were detected. Numerous Officers with the Aberdeen Police Department and Deputies with the Harford County Sheriff’s Office were on hand throughout the day and during dismissal to ensure the safety of the students, parents and staff while the investigation was conducted. The threats were deemed to be unfounded.
