FARGO, N.D. (Valley News Live) - Officials are investigating another local threat of a school shooting.

Valley News Live received a message on its Whistleblower Hotline Wednesday night from someone saying that they’re ‘going to shoot up the school on Monday,’ but did not say which one.

Local officers say they’ve had a juvenile calling in threats like this recently, and are working to see if it’s linked. If it is, officers say they will notify school administrations.

This is the second time Valley News Live’s Whistleblower Hotline received a threat of this nature. The first was reported on November 1, when a caller said that ‘someone’s going to shoot up the high school, ‘DL’ high school.’

Detroit Lakes Police said because it wasn’t clear if the caller meant Devils Lake or Detroit Lakes, a larger police presence was provided at those schools. The police identified the person as a juvenile who made that threat, but couldn’t provide any other details.
