As threats of violence made by an anonymous Instagram user circulated among students, Interim Principal James Reed III made a P.A. announcement at 8:47 a.m. instructing staff to check email. The email message stated that the threat was being investigated but did not instruct teachers whether or how to communicate with students.

More than 600 students left the building in the next few hours. The student who allegedly made the threats was later arrested and at 9:45 p.m., 

Superintendent Gregory C. Hutchings, Jr. posted news of the arrest to shaker.org.
