COLUMBUS, IN — An investigation is underway to determine the source of a social media post that the Columbus Police Department says made a threat "involving an unspecified act of violence" toward Central Middle School.

According to CPD, there are several rumors and false information being shared on social media related to the threat. However, police do not believe there is any "credible" threat to students or staff at the middle school at this time.

CPD and the Bartholomew Consolidated School Corporation have been working to determine the source and will update the community if there is a relevant development.
