The Ithaca Police Department and Tompkins County Sheriff’s Office are investigating several social media posts containing a person holding a firearm and referencing the school.
According to authorities, the posts were created by a youth that lives in the Ithaca area. The posts do not specifically mention any of the schools in the Ithaca City School District. No charges have been filed at this time and law enforcement believes there’s no immediate threat.
As police continue their investigation, they are keeping the Ithaca City School District informed of any progress, or any changes regarding the safety of students and faculty.
The Trumansburg School District was made aware of the video Wednesday morning, prompting a lockout and “stay in place” within the district for about an hour. They were told the video was from a “neighboring school district.”
