“The FBI has confirmed that the individual in question whose whereabouts are unknown is dangerous,” the school district, which serves more than 14,000 students about 20 miles east of Kansas City, said in a statement on Facebook.
“We believe the best course of action is to close our summer school sites and all school programming until further notice,” 它说.
In their own statements, some of the districts noted they did not have any information indicating the threat was related to their respective school communities. But they, like Blue Springs, opted to cancel activities Wednesday out of an abundance of caution.
The FBI confirmed it had been made aware of the threat by Blue Springs police in a statement to CNN but directed further questions to that department, which is the lead investigative agency.
“We take all threats of violence seriously and work with our local partners to provide resources as needed,” the FBI statement said.
