Earlier this morning, law enforcement personnel from the Hamilton County Sheriff’s Office and Soddy Daisy Police Department responded to a false active shooter threat at Soddy Daisy High School. The incident caused panic among students, teachers, and parents, as fears of a potential mass shooting spread throughout the community.
According to the Hamilton County Sheriff’s Office, the threat was reported via an anonymous phone call to the school administration. As a precautionary measure, the school was immediately placed on lockdown, and law enforcement officers swiftly arrived at the scene to secure the area and ensure the safety of everyone present.
After a thorough investigation, it was determined that the active shooter threat was a hoax. The Hamilton County Sheriff’s Office detectives are now working diligently to identify the source of the false report and bring the responsible individuals to justice.
This incident highlights the serious consequences of making false threats that disrupt the peace and security of educational institutions. Not only do these threats cause unnecessary panic and fear, but they also divert vital resources from genuine emergencies that may occur elsewhere.
The Hamilton County Sheriff’s Office has urged anyone with information about the incident or the individual(s) responsible for making the false threat to come forward and assist in the ongoing investigation.
The Soddy Daisy High School administration, in collaboration with law enforcement, will be implementing additional security measures to ensure the safety of students and staff.
