Lubbock Cooper ISD Police investigate threat on bus

Lubbock Cooper ISD tells KCBD that police were called investigate a potential threat heard by a school bus driver Thursday.  The district says nothing was found.

We had several comments on our Facebook page asking about an incident Thursday afternoon.  The district says a driver told his supervisor that he overheard a student make a comment about a gun. That was around 4:00 p.m.  LCISD Police were dispatched to the bus.

LCISD released this statement to KCBD Thursday evening: At approximately 4:00 p.m. today (Thurs.), an LCISD bus driver reported to his supervisor that he overheard a student make a comment about a gun.  The LCISD police were immediately contacted and dispatched to the bus. 

Following district administrative procedures, the police officers and administrators thoroughly investigated the situation and determined there were no weapons.  We are continuing to investigate the incident in an attempt to identify the student who made the comment.

Lubbock-Cooper ISD takes the safety and security of its students and staff very seriously and will, therefore, respond swiftly and appropriately to any potential threat that could jeopardize that safety and security in any way.
