Threat reportedat high school
Graffiti found at Goshen High School Thursday indicated there would be violence at the school Friday. School officials did not consider the threat to be credible.
The incident comes after a bomb threat was found written on a girls’ bathroom mirror at the school March 13.
In the most recent episode, graffiti was found on a third-floor girls’ restroom mirror, according to a Goshen police report. Following the discovery, the Goshen Community Schools administration released a statement to parents of Goshen students. It read, in part:
“There is video surveillance on the restroom entrance and nothing suspicious is noted. Once again, we do not believe this is a credible threat, but extra precautions will be taken with additional police presence (Friday). School officials will be continuing to work with the Goshen Police Department to investigate this circumstance. If you have any concerns, please call the GHS or the GCS Administration Office.”
• A 32-year-old Goshen resident told Elkhart County police that someone cut her 16-year-old son in the neck with a knife March 13 or 14. The attack reportedly occurred in the 200 block of Crescent Street in Goshen.
