Reward for information on Park Hill South threat reaches $1,200

RIVERSIDE, Mo. - Park Hill South High School is offering a $200 reward for information leading to the arrest of the offender who made threats toward the school.

Last Wednesday, Park Hill South High School was placed on lock down for several hours after receiving what Nicole Kirby, the district's director of communication services, said was a threatening call.

Students said they sat in the gym for more than an hour before anyone told them why they were there.

"He finally told us that someone made a call, and threats that someone had a gun in the school," freshman Zaine Lindenberg said.

Riverside Police are investigating the incident. They have not yet released what was said during the phone call or where the call came.

Park Hill South's reward is an addition to Crime Stoppers' reward of up to $1,000 for information that leads to an arrest.

To contact Crime Stoppers, call the TIPS Hotline at 816-474-TIPS, or text TIP452 to 274637 (CRIMES).
