Detroit, Mich., Nov 1, 2019 / 14:05 pm
Four Catholic high schools in the Archdiocese of Detroit closed Friday after serious threats were made against the schools, officials have reported.
According to the Detroit Free Press, the threats against at least three of the schools included threats about a "shooting rampage" at school Mass on November 1, the feast of All Saints Day.
It is yet unclear if or how the reported threats may be connected to each other.
On Thursday, staff at the all-boys high school Warren De La Salle Collegiate sent an email to parents, warning them that a "serious threat" had been made against the school and that classes would be canceled Friday.
"The Warren Police Department was alerted, and school officials are collaborating with them to investigate this threat," the school said in a statement posted to its website.
