Shorewood High School
On Thursday, September 13, 2018, police were at Shorewood High School, 17300 Fremont Ave N, Shoreline 98133.

The rumor at the school on Thursday among the students was that:

...the school had received a phone threat of possible gunfire at the school but the purported attacker was reported to the police by some people who knew him and the police found him and arrested him. The police also were supposed to have found guns and ammunition in his house. He was supposed to have been a student at the school. Officials didn’t close the school as they figured they had the incident under control.

Principal Bill Dunbar sent a notice to families on Wednesday evening, which apparently did not filter down to all the students.

This afternoon, we received an anonymous tip through our tip line that a threat had been made against the school. Law enforcement was immediately notified and investigated. 
They were able to identify the individual alleged to have made a threat and interviewed them this evening. Shoreline Police determined there was no threat to the school. 
While there is no threat to the school, police will pose an additional presence on school grounds tomorrow out of an abundance of caution.
