The Wright City Schools have determined a rumor that 2 middle school boys were going to shoot up the school is unfounded.
After school administrators and law enforcement investigated further, it was determined neither student had made any kind of threat. A third student read a post on social media that was not about the Wright City Schools and told his friend about it.
The story was then told over and over to students in the school, until the rumor developed into the 2 boys being implicated.
The school was on lockdown this morning as a precaution.
