An alleged threat is currently under investigation according to Danville Public Schools.

According to Danville Police Department Lieutenant Richard Chivvis, a social media rumor indicated, "there might be a shooting at GW today."

"We are aware and running down the source," Chivvis said. The threat was found to not be credible. 

"There is a social media post circulating that there is a potential threat at George Washington High School. This is not a valid threat and the source of the post is being investigated by the Danville Police Department," Danville Public Schools said in a social media post Tuesday, Nov. 12.
