The Hurricane City Police Department has provided an update on the active shooter incident reported at Hurricane High School in Utah Monday afternoon.
"Active Shooter incident reported at 13:15 on 4/1/24 at Hurricane High School. School is NOT in session today. Officers from HCPD and every neighboring agency within the county responded to assist. Initial reports came through a non emergency call to dispatch reporting that they were in the high school locked inside the library and auditorium and shots were being fired inside the school," police said in a statement on Facebook.
"As of this time Officers have cleared those areas and not located anyone or any signs of gunshots being fired inside the school. More information will be provided once the incident is complete."
A sergeant with HCPD said in a video update that they initially received reports of subjects barricaded in the building.
“This appears to have been what we refer to as a swatting incident, with false information,” he said.
The sergeant reported that during the school search, a total of 29 individuals were found, including 23 students. Parents were notified, and all individuals were safely evacuated.
Following the evacuation of students, a SWAT team conducted a secondary search of the school premises to ensure there were no remaining individuals inside.
“There is no reason for us to believe that there is a danger to the public at this time,” the sergeant said in the video update. “We are currently investigating the phone calls that were made to our dispatch center to look into potentially pursuing the persons that made those phone calls for criminal charges.”
Anyone with any information about the incident has been asked to reach out to the Hurricane City Police Department.
“There was no shooting at the school today,” the sergeant said.
