Salisbury High School Lockdown Photos: Full Story & Must-See Details



Salisbury High School in Mississippi has been placed on “Code Orange”  after violent charges were made on social media.

According to police, the social media threat, which could be seen on Facebook and depicted threats of violence, claimed that a school with the letter “SHS” in its name would be targeted.

Salisbury Township police said they were notified early in the morning over the social media post and boosted police presence around the school.

As this story is developing, more information will be updated as made available.

What happened?

According to Fox 46, the post came from a person identified as “Ray Andres,” with the threat starting in Guam and spreading to the United States; another account that had changed its name to “Ray Andres” also claimed to be from Salisbury, North Carolina.

According to WBTV, it is believed that the original threat was made against another high school, but the school had been placed under a “Code Yellow” lockdown; SHS principal Luke Brown confirmed that the level was raised to “Code Orange” after additional threats were found on social media. The current lockdown is defined as the following:

“A Code Orange lockdown means that all doors are locked, students are restricted to their classrooms, visitors are not allowed on campus, and teaching continues.”

Police are also currently investigating the situation. Brown gave the following statement to the Salisbury Post:

“We will continue to work closely with law enforcement and take all necessary measures in assuring that our school remains safe.”

What do we know about the post?

The original social media post said the following:

“I will not be telling people what my name is, but I will bring a gun to school tomorrow so be prepared to hear shoots.”

A post made 10 minutes later wrote:

“Yes SHS is the school I want.”

According to WTVA, Lee County Sheriff Jim Johnson claimed that the original version of the post was originally written in regards to Springfield High School in Ohio. The Springfield Police Division in Ohio posted the following on their Facebook page in response:

“In response to the recent threat toward Springfield High School that has been circulating: The Springfield Police Division takes all threats against our community seriously. We are actively investigating this incident and are keeping school and public officials advised. There is evidence that the original Facebook post that started this incident was hoaxed, but the Police and School officials will take appropriate security measures and there will be a police presence at the High School tomorrow. We are also working with Facebook officials to track down the origins of the first post. Should we locate the source, that person(s) will be arrested, charged, and prosecuted. – Chief Graf”
