Fort Lauderdale police said they’re investigating several school shooting threats that were posted on social media over the past few days.

Detectives are investigating threats against Dillard High, Strahan High and William Dandy Middle, the department said Monday morning.

“We encourage anyone with information about the posts or the person(s) responsible to contact us right away,” Fort Lauderdale PD said in a news release. “If you wish to remain anonymous, you may report information on the the Saferwatch app.”

Last month three Broward students were arrested after two allegedly threatened to “terrorize” a Pembroke Pines School and one brought a gun to school in Miramar.

Police said it has already been determined that most these threats are not credible.

Many parents are concerned by the amount of threats already this school year.
