Online Threat Leads To Lockdown At Pine Forest, George Stone, Longleaf

September 11, 2019

Pine Forest High School, George Stone Technical College and Longleaf Elementary were placed on lockdown Wednesday after a student made an online threat, but it was later determined that the alleged threat had nothing to do with any of the schools.

The Escambia County Sheriff’s Office received a tip from the Okaloosa County Sheriff’s Office about a social media threat that matched the name of a George Stone student.

The student was questioned but not charged with any crime. Deputies say the student was not the person that made the threat.

    We need to lock these “tough guys” into a mental institution for about a year – that would discourage the show off copy cats.

    Digital footprints, people.

    Nearly impossible to cover.
