More Bomb Threats at Local Schools

On 08-13-21, at approx 1345hrs, officers responded to a bomb threat at Hirschi High School. Over the course of the next hour, 4 more threats came in at Rider, Old High, Barwise, and Kirby.

All 5 schools activated their emergency protocols and evacuated the students while the buildings were cleared in a multi-jurisdictional effort. Once the buildings had been cleared and no bombs were found, students were returned to the schools for their normal dismissal activites.

This is the second day in a row that these types of threats have been called in. We are asking anyone with any information about who may be making these threats to call us immediately. Terroristic Threats are a violation of the law and will be taken seriously.

Wichita Falls Crime Stoppers is offering a $2500 reward in the case. To call in an anonymous tip, please call 940-322-9888.
