Threat prompts extra police at Garland High School

There will be extra police at Garland High School on Wednesday because of a threat that was made against the campus.

Garland ISD alerted parents Tuesday night. 

The district did not share details about the threat but said metal detectors will be in use at Garland High School on Wednesday.

Garland police said a social media post was sent to a GISD student, claiming to be planning violence at "GHS," but did not specifically mention Garland.

The post was sent to others and quickly spread online.

Garland police say they are working to identify the source of the post, but have determined it came from out of state.

The account responsible has since been deactivated.
