No incidents after shooting threat at Copperas Cove High School

Copperas Cove ISD Shooting Threat

Copperas Cove High School held classes without incident Monday, after someone threatened to shoot up the campus -- in a spray-painted warning was discovered Friday on the wall of a car wash on Casa Street.

In response, both Copperas Cove Police officers and Coryell County Sheriff's deputies guarded the high school Monday and searched students as necessary.

"We did see a decrease in student attendance at the high school, but that is common immediately following a holiday such as Spring Break," district spokesperson Wendy Sledd said in a statement.

The district said the threat did not affect overall attendance at its schools.

One high school senior told Channel 6 she was disappointed police had to devote their time to securing the school over a threat.
