Social media spreads unsubstantiated reports about possible incident at LHS

The Susanville Police Department has received numerous inquiries over the past two days about an alleged incident that was supposed to occur today, Dec. 15, during an assembly at Lassen High School.

The information regarding a former student had been investigated earlier on Nov. 6. The former student had been contacted by area law enforcement about the alleged threats.

Investigators determined there was no credible threat made by the former student, and it was found to be unsubstantiated.

These rumors have again been recirculated recently over social media.

Our School Resource Officer has diligently followed up on these rumors with the assistance of the school’s administration. Again, this recent information appears to be the same as the prior investigation conducted in November and is still found to be unsubstantiated.

Most of the information floating out on social media is untrue and causing undo stress in our community and the student body.

The Susanville Police Department will be present at the assembly tomorrow in support of making the students feel safe.
