Additional police are at East Hartford High School Friday as a precaution because of a Snapchat message that had a photo of a gun and mentioned “EHHS.”
Sgt. Joshua Litwin, the public information officer for the East Hartford Police Department, said there is no direct threat to the school.
The message on Snapchat was distributed nationwide in a large chain to hundreds, if not thousands, of children. He said there are many schools around the country with the same initials and a few extra units are at the school today “out of an abundance of caution.”
