“Fun violence” threat on social media prompts immediate response by Montgomery County Sheriffs, CMCSS


CLARKSVILLE: Fun violence. That’s what three Clarksville High School students are being questioned about after threats were allegedly made on Instagram. All are juveniles whose identities are protected by law. No charges have been filed.

The threat prompted a quick response by Montgomery County Sheriffs, who immediately ramped up security at Clarksville High School.

Sheriff John Fuson: “This type of activity cannot and will not be tolerated. We will pick up right where we left off last school year, and prosecute each and every threat to the fullest extent while making examples of those who threaten the safety of our schools.”

Fuson said his office continues to investigate the threat. CMCSS became aware of the social media threat, involving a gun, on Tuesday. The threatening post was made in a chat room by students from CHS and a student from another county.

MCSO said the investigation is ongoing.
