Donna ISD will be shutting down all campuses Thursday and Friday after a credible threat was reported to police, according to a source familiar with the situation.
An AK-47 and a list of targeted students were found by law enforcement officers in the home of one of the suspects. According to the source, two to three people were involved in the foiled plot to open fire at a campus.
The situation comes a day after a mass shooting in Uvalde claimed the lives of 19 children and two teachers.
Donna ISD superintendent Angela Dominguez said she cannot comment on the details of the situation, but confirmed they will be shutting down and said they are taking action out of an abundance of caution.
The school district released the following message to parents and staff.
“We’ve received a credible threat of violence that is currently under investigation,” the message read. “In light of the recent events and in an abundance of caution, we will be canceling school district-wide classes and staff will work from home. The safety and security of our students & staff is our first priority. Classes will resume on Tuesday morning.”
Monitor staff writer Valerie Gonzalez contributed to this report.
