Erie police officials confirm that they are investigating reports of social media threats to three of Erie's Public Schools. Police began receiving reports Sunday evening of suggested threats made via Snapchat. A person appeared to solicit help to shoot up Strong Vincent Middle School and Erie High and made reference to homemade bombs and guns.
Robert Benjamin Wiley school sent out an official notice that school is cancelled for Monday November 4, "due to terroristic threats."
Erie Rise Leadership Academy Charter School has also cancelled classes for Monday, as the investigation into these threats continue.
Erie Public School officials said the district used their "one call" system to notify families that the district is aware of the social media posts and that the Erie Police Department is investigating.
