DeSoto, Texas - Students at DeSoto High School and DeSoto Middle School are on lockdown while police investigate an unverified threat.
The DeSoto Police Department Sgt. Sherman Williams said someone posted a message on Twitter about wanting to shoot up the high school Monday.
“That threat is unverified and there is nothing to suggest it is an actual threat”, Sgt. Williams said.
The school district said that both the high school and middle school were placed on lockdown as a precaution.
“There is no immediate threat at this time. All students are safe and accounted for”, the district said.
Police are searching the high school campus as a precaution.
This is a pending investigation and no additional information is available at this time.
This is not the time for liberals to spew the typical gun control rhetoric. For all we know, the twitter message may have been sent to spark another outcry.
Law abiding citizens are not the individuals who target schools to slaughter innocent children.
Criminals will always find a way to get their hands on guns. More than 64,000 Americans died from drug overdose in 2016. That number doubled in the last 10 years.
Making drugs illegal doesn’t stop people from selling them on the streets. The same would be said for guns. The left has always pushed for gun control as a tool to gain votes during the election.
It’s time we secure these schools like we secured the Airports and the Arenas. Notice how it’s always the unprotected schools that are targeted? If we create a deterrent, these attacks will stop.

Agreed Lexy. Enough is enough with the pussy footing around…cut to the chase. People need to start saying what they mean & meaning what they say. Put up or shut up.
Great article Lexy!!
Time to protect our children with "school marshals" just like air marshals no one needs to know who they are or even if a school has any, this will be a better deterrent than what we currently have.
Good point Lexy,
The early info is that the Canadian Van attack was more than likely a terrorist. We always need to take threats seriously. Will the liberal Gun ban crowd also now also say no driving cars in the school parking lot???
You hit the nail right on the head. I look for more of these threats as the liberals/Democrats are determined to ban all guns. Your article was concise and very informative. Excellent!
Our local schools either have metal detectors or police are stationed there. The only problem we suffered locally here was at an unprotected school and the disgruntled student used a butcher knife. Nobody died, but there were critical injuries. The boy will have plenty of time to think of his wrong choice that day since he got sentenced up to 60 years.
