Gun threat investigated at Tazewell High School

A threat on social media has caused law enforcement in Tazewell, Virginia to increase the number of officers on campus for a football game Friday night.

The heavy presence of policemen for the event is due to a rumor of a someone bringing a gun to school at Tazewell High that TCSO Major Harold Heatley said was originated on social media websites on Wednesday.

A number of students have been interviewed by investigators and some of the students responsible for posting the rumor have not been allowed back on school grounds, Heatley said.
