ANTIOCH (KRON)—The Antioch Unified School District reports its schools have been the target of “creepy clown” threats Tuesday according to district officials.
Students reported the social media threats Tuesday morning at several of the district’s middle and high schools.
This is part of the hoax that is being shared across the country, said Associate Superintendent Adam Clark.
The police department is investigating the case, Clark said.
The message appears to be a copycat and it hopes the threats were not made by a student inside the Antioch Unified School District, according to Clark.
“Please remind your child that making social media posts that threaten violence against a school and/or students is considered a terrorist threat, is punishable by law, and could result in expulsion from the school district,” Clark said.
