Allegation of FHS student with gun investigated
School officials notified parents of the Facebook post, made around 6:30 p.m. Thursday.
The sheriff’s office Thursday night began investigating a Facebook post that alleges a student had a gun at Fauquier High School earlier in the day.
“The alleged incident was described in a post made on a local yard sale site and was not reported to law enforcement or the schools by the person posting,” sheriff’s Sgt. James Hartman said.
Sheriff’s investigators are “working to verify the identity of the person making these statements and to prove the veracity of the information contained in the post,” Sgt. Hartman said.
The school system notified parents of the online allegation, posted around 6:30 p.m., he added.
“There is no evidence that substantiates the information contained in the post at this time,” Sgt. Hartman said. “Additional police presence will be at Fauquier High School tomorrow.”
The sergeant added: “It should be noted that information such as this should be immediately reported to law enforcement and not (posted) on a local yard sale site.”
He encouraged anyone with information about the incident to call the sheriff’s office at 540-347-3300. A caller’s name can remain anonymous.
