Despite Possible Threats, Dav. Schools Open Today

Oct 4, 2017

Davenport schools were open Wednesday as usual despite possible threats posted on social media. 

Davenport Superintendent Art Tate says the threats of possible school shootings were received earlier this week in the Des Moines suburb of Johnston. Then the threats "found their way" through social media to Davenport on Tuesday night. 

The Davenport Police Department, and school district, investigated and found that there was no credible threat to local schools. 

Anyone with any possible information about these threats should call the Davenport Police Department at (563) 326-6125 or submit an anonymous tip via the "CityConnect Davenport, IA" mobile app.
