Social media alleged threats

We are aware of concerning posts spread via social media regarding the Tyngsborough Middle School.  We have identified the two juveniles who are suspected of making the comments, our detectives are with them and their parents now.   Although we do not believe at this time that there was any intention to make a threat, we will continue to investigate to uncover the facts of what exactly happened.   There is no active threat against the school or it’s community that is known to us at this time.

I have been in contact tonight with Superintendent Mike Flannagan regarding this issue; the police department and  school administration, along with school resource Sergeant Steve Manning will continue to work closely.

Thank you for your patience as we work through the facts and circumstances of this situation. 


Chief Richard Howe
