[ARCHIVED] FPD, FCPS respond to quell credible threat against middle school

Public Safety Alert

On Sunday, Sept. 12, 2021 the Frederick Police Department and Frederick County Public Schools were made aware of a credible threat against Monocacy Middle School. 


The threat originated from a social media posting involving students at Monocacy Middle School. The initial threat indicated a plan to shoot students at the school, and the families of specific targets have been notified. School Resource Officers we’re immediately made aware of the threat and began to investigate. 


FPD has identified a primary suspect in the investigation and charges are pending. 

Throughout the investigation, officers from FPD determined that, while a plan was verbalized to act on this threat, the suspects did not have access to the means to carry out the plan. 


FPD and FCPS want to reassure the community that the agencies no longer believe there is an active threat against the school, but will have an increased presence at the school in the coming days.
