Law enforcement is investigating after Billy Mills Middle School received a report that a former student had made threatening comments about violence toward the school on social media, according to an email to school families.

On top of that, students at two other middle schools allegedly made false reports of a shooting and a threat on Monday, and police were investigating a threat to a Lawrence elementary school Monday night.
