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.

Bomb Threat Investigation – All Clear

UPDATE: The building has been cleared and no bombs were found. However, the case will remain under investigation. Terroristic Threats are a violation of the law and will be taken seriously. If any one has any information about this threat, or know who may have called it in, please call Crime Stoppers at 940-322-9888.

Wichita Falls Police and Fire Units, along with resources from Sheppard Air Force Base, are on scene at Old High, 2149 Avenue H, due to a reported bomb threat.

At this time, all students and faculty have been evacuated. Most students have left for the day or have been picked up from school.

As a precaution, all participating agencies will remain on the scene until the investigation is complete and the building has been cleared.

Although no bomb has been located at this time, we do ask the public to avoid the area until further notice.

We will update you with more information as soon as we have it.
