MINNEOLA, Florida—The Lake County Sheriff’s Office is investigating after a written shooting threat was received at Lake Minneola High School Thursday afternoon, according to Lt. John Herrell.
The threat was received around 1:20 p.m., about 10 minutes before classes change and the school, located at 101 North Hancock Road, was placed on lockdown out of an abundance of caution, Herrell told Inside Lake. The school was checked and deemed safe. No one has been arrested.
The threat delayed dismissal for around 10 minutes and there is a heavy law enforcement presence at the school, Herrell said
A written threat to kill is a felony charge and the names of juveniles arrested for felonies are public record. This is at least the fourth incident in Lake County Schools since the school year began a little more than a month ago.
