Tigard High School Closed Friday For Shooting Threat Investigation

TIGARD, Ore. —

Tigard High School is closed today after the district received information about a possible shooting.

Tigard Police say that because of the time they were notified they were not able to determine the credibility of the threat before classes started this morning.

Investigators say the threat stemmed from a fight between students on Thursday, February 16th at Tigard High.

According to a statement by Tigard Police it wasn’t until later that the threats were made, “Later in the evening, there was a report that some of those students and an adult in a car encountered each other at a gas station and verbal threats were made at that time.”

Officers credit an anonymous call made through the Safe Oregon hotline for alerting the district and police.
