Threat at Lexington Catholic unfounded

A reported threat at Lexington Catholic High School has been determined to be unfounded.

On Thursday November 9 officers responded to Lexington Catholic for what students reported to school officials as a perceived threat made by a fellow student. Investigators with the Lexington Police Department quickly identified several students involved in the incident and extra patrols were put in place as a precaution.

Following a thorough investigation, police do not believe there to be a viable threat at this time against the school, students, faculty or staff. Officers will follow up on any new information received.
