On Jan. 7, the Morgantown Police Department was made aware of a social media post regarding the threat of a possible shooting to take place at “MHS”. Officers were able to confirm that this post was from another state and that the local authorities in that jurisdiction had already began an investigation. That agency also confirmed that this incident was taking place in their respective jurisdiction. Therefore, the “MHS” in question is NOT Morgantown High School.
The Morgantown Police Department is committed to its goal of eliminating crime in our city. Citizens are encouraged to become “Partner in Policing”, by reporting suspected criminal activity to Morgantown Police Department Switchboard at (304) 284-7522. If you need immediate Police attention or a crime is in progress call 911.
