BRANTFORD – The vice principal of a Brantford highschool says threats of a school shooting are “not credible” after an investigation.

Two Brantford schools investigated threats of gun violence after a note was found Friday morning, attached to the Lorne Bridge, threatening gun violence at Assumption College School and Brantford Collegiate Institute.

Concerned parents reported the note to police Friday morning.

Assumption College Vice-Principal Patrick Brophy sent a message out to parents at 9 a.m. Friday morning confirming the threats were reported and investigated by city police.

“In response to the social media rumours indicating a threat of violence against our school community, these rumours are not credible and there is no threat to Assumption College,” said Brophy.

Brophy said all claims of violence were investigated with city police and senior school board officials and “deemed unsubstantiated”. According to the statement the school is open and activities are running as normal.

Brantford Collegiate Principal Ann Myhal said she had limited information about the incident, but said a “generic threat” was posted on the bridge. Myhal said police were not investigating at the school.

Grand Erie District School Board officials were unavailable for comment.
