Shooting threat reported at Ector Middle School

A student at Ector Middle School, 809 W. Clements Ave., reported he found a threatening message written on the wall of one of the restrooms.

The message, which was very small and written in pencil, claimed there would be a school shooting today (March 21).

The Ector County Independent School District Police Department is investigating and will take extra precautions Wednesday, but a news release said they do not believe there is a real threat to students and staff.

However, the district takes any threat seriously and is hopeful the police will be able to get some leads on who might have written it, the release stated.
