Coral Shores High School students entering their final week of class witnessed a large law enforcement presence on May 23 following a threat made by a student.
According to the Monroe County Sheriff’s Office, the student who made the threatening statements during the morning was identified and interviewed. The name of the student wasn’t provided, and it’s unknown whether he had any association to the high school.
The sheriff’s office concluded there was no active threat after working with the Monroe County School District, the Office of the State Attorney and the Miami-Dade Police Department.
“The safety of our children is my number one priority,” said Sheriff Rick Ramsay. “I want to thank school officials, the State Attorney’s Office, and the Miami-Dade Police Department for their help in ensuring that priority is met.”
A criminal investigation is ongoing as the sheriff’s office is working with prosecutors and the student’s parents who have been cooperative.
