Police say that just before 7 p.m., a parent of a student reported to police that the student saw an anonymous Snapchat story while browsing the map of Wallingford on the Snapchat App.
At that time, the anonymous post was about six hours old and was a map of the east part of Wallingford containing a threat in white text letters.
While the threat was not directed at a specific person, group, business or school, three schools, Lyman Hall High School, Dag Hammarskjold Middle School, and E.C. Stevens Elementary School, are located within the area of the map.
Because of this, police have stepped up patrols and placed extra officers at the schools, especially during the morning drop off.
The nature of the threat is unclear at this time but police say it is non credible and originated from Danny’s Way in Wallingford.
The incident remains under investigation.
