FORT MYERS, Fla. - A series of tweets and Facebook messages about threats directed at Fort Myers High School are raising concerns in the aftermath of a double murder last weekend that took the life of a student.
Parents were pulling their children out of the high school this morning when tweets alluded to a possible revenge shooting at the high school this morning. Messages about the possible violence have also appeared on Facebook.
The Lee County Sheriff's Office tells FOX 4 News that extra school resource officers have been placed in the school to ensure the safety of the students and the public.
LCSO says it is investigating the matter as well.
Fort Myers High student JoJo Brunson, 17 and his cousin, Paul Baldwin, 20, were shot and killed Saturday night in Fort Myers. That investigation remains open.
