Informational release regarding possible school threat

December 20, 2012

Det. Robert Onishi
, Renton Police Department, 425-430-7529

Renton Police have received a number of media inquiries about a possible threat situation at Hazen High School. Yesterday, we were contacted by school staff after a report that a student overheard an unidentified subject in a school hallway make a passing remark about bringing a gun to school. Neither school staff nor Renton Police School Resource Officers were able to substantiate the possible threat, nor to gain any further information about the identity of the subject making the remark. As a precautionary measure, Renton Police have added staffing today at Hazen High School. Anyone having any direct information about this incident is asked to call 911 to give such information to the Renton Police.

Thank you, and have a happy and safe Holiday!
