Online threats made against Byrnes High, Jewish, Muslim students
Spartanburg County Sheriff's deputies are investigating threats made against Jewish and Muslim students at Byrnes High School.
Additional law enforcement officers will patrol Byrnes High School over the next several days after the threats, which contained vulgar and violent language, were reported to deputies.
"We are taking it very seriously," said Spartanburg School District 5 Superintendent Scott Turner. "I was very alarmed when I saw the posts and how vile some of the language was, and how direct the threats were, not only against our students but the families of our students."
The threats included Nazi language and imagery, Facebook screenshots show.
In addition to the violent, threatening language, the posts included pictures of someone wearing a gas mask, and images of Nazi medals and a knife adorned with a swastika.
"First the school, then the city; Tuesday, that's the day we strike," one of the Facebook posts stated.
Both District 5 and law enforcement officials are unsure who exactly made the threats.
A Spartanburg County Sheriff's Office incident report states the suspect told a Byrnes student on Facebook that he was 16 and lived in Laurens County.
A Facebook profile, however, claims the suspect is 24 and lives in Rapid City, S.D., the report state
Anyone with information on the threats made against Byrnes students is asked to call the Spartanburg County Sheriff's Office.
