PERRY, Ohio — A series of threatening messages at Perry High School prompted increased security on school grounds Friday.

According to a message from the superintendent, the first message was discovered by a school custodian in the girls’ restroom. Lightly written in pencil, it said:

“Perry shooting will happen no one believes Help.”

Police were called to investigate, and the next day, a second message was found by a Perry police officer in the same bathroom. The note, faintly written in pencil, read:

“A shooting is coming.”

On Thursday morning, yet another message was discovered by a staff member. It said:

“A shooting will happen Thurs/Friday.”

Although Perry Police Chief Michael Shank is confident the messages are a hoax, police stepped up patrols at the school as a precaution.

Anyone with information on wrongdoing can report it anonymously to the SAFE SCHOOLS HELP HOTLINE at 1-800-418-6423 extension 359, or by texting 66746 and typing “TIPS.”
