An alarming case of vandalism at a Kitchener high school, as a shooting threat was found written on a washroom stall.

Regional Police were called to Huron Heights Secondary School on Strasburg Road early Wednesday morning after the violent message was discovered.

WRPS Spokesperson Cherri Greeno says it read quote – “School Shooting March 28! Not a joke. Watch Out.”

“Specifically, the message indicated that there would be a school shooting at Huron Heights Secondary School on March 28th, and warned people to ‘watch out’ for that.”

Greeno adds the message was initially discovered by a staff member at the school on Tuesday night.

“We’re now working with our School Board partners to try and determine the author of this message, as well as the motive behind it. Our investigators are going through some surveillance video from the school, as well as reaching out to students or anyone in the public that may have information.”

Greeno says this is very concerning to WRPS, the community, the school, and the students.

Anyone with information regarding the threat is urged to contact WRPS at 519-570-9777 ext. 4421 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.

Meantime, the Principal of Huron Heights SS has released a statement – saying actions or stunts like this will be met with severe consequences to ensure the safety of the school and their students.
