Police Say Hoax When Chillicothe High School "Swatted"

The Chillicothe Police Department reports that around 2:47pm Friday they received a phone call that stated that there was an active shooter situation at the Chillicothe High School.

Officers responded to the school, where School Resource Officers were already on scene. Officers found this to be a hoax and there was no incident.

This hoax has been occurring statewide recently and is referred to as “Swatting” because it is intended to send a SWAT team to a site.

The Police Department states it is is a very dangerous and illegal hoax...that will get you arrested and charged with a Felony.
