Threat to Marysville-area school deemed not credible

An online threat made against a school on the Tulalip Reservation has been deemed not credible, a spokeswoman for the Tulalip Tribes said Tuesday morning.

Tribal police are investigating the online threat made against Heritage High School, said a spokesman for the Marysville School District.

There have been media reports of a lockdown or a modified lockdown, but spokesman Aaron Toso said the school was not locked down. Toso didn’t have detailed information about the online threat, or whether it was related to the shootings at Marysville-Pilchuck High School last week.

Most of the victims of the shooting, as well as the shooter, were tribal members.

Francesca Hillery, spokeswoman for the Tulalip Tribes, said the threat was made through social media.

“We just heard it was found not to be a credible threat,” Hillery said.
