The Sheridan Police Department has announced that at 8:54 a.m. on April 3, the SPD received a telephone call on a non-emergency line in which the caller reported seven students had been shot in Sheridan High School. 

SPD officers and Sheridan County Sheriff’s Office deputies responded to Sheridan County School District 2 schools and determined, after searches of the schools, that the reports were false. SPD officers did lock down the high school while the search was conducted.

The SPD, SCSD #2 and the Sheriff’s Office take all threats to the safety of Sheridan County community’s children with the utmost seriousness.

The SPD reports that several schools throughout Wyoming received the same hoax, to include schools in Campbell County, Natrona County, Lincoln County and Johnson County. Schools in other states received the same threat. All agencies the SPD contacted received the calls between 8 a.m. and 9:03:a.m.

Law Enforcement throughout the state will strive to identify the caller and take the appropriate actions.
