KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Kansas City, Kansas, police have arrested a person in connection to a threat made to a local school, the department announced Friday.

KCKPD said it received tips from concerned parents about a threat against J.C. Harmon High School circulating on social media on Oct. 31.

Officers then launched an investigation and made plans “to ensure the safety of students at school” on Nov. 1.

KCKPD worked with the Kansas City, Kansas, Public Schools Police Department to investigate and make the arrest.

Both departments reminded parents to “observe and be aware of your child’s online activity” in a Friday news release.

There was no word at the time of this report on what, if any, charges the person arrested would be facing.

In early October, Harmon and the nearby Argentine Middle School were the subject of separate threats.
