This information was released by the Watertown Police Department at 8:26am this morning.
The Watertown Police Department received information of a social media rumor being circulated about potential school violence at the Watertown Middle School. The WPD has interviewed numerous people regarding the threat. There is no credibility to the rumors and no evidence had been obtained to substantiate any threat. The WPD continues to investigate the rumors. Again, there is absolutely no credibility to the rumors. We take these alleged threats seriously and are deploying all necessary resources to investigate the matter. Social media is notorious for misinformation. The WPD will provide immediate information if at any time any credible threat is discovered.
