Fresh on the heels of another tragic school shooting in Washington, this morning a threat led officials to lock down Maui High School and Kahului Elementary. Since the 8:50 a.m. incident, Maui Police have determined the threat as a likely hoax. If followed through, any arrest made would still be for Terroristic Threatening.
School Administrative personnel locked down their schools as a precautionary measure due to an alleged threat. Police arrived on scene and cleared both Maui High School and Kahului Elementary School and deemed that the schools were safe at 10:30 a.m. Investigation revealed that there were no threats at the schools. This incident was determined to be unfounded.
