NEW: Worcester and Clark Police Investigating Shooting Threat

Tuesday, December 18, 2012

 

Clark University Police and the Worcester Police Department are investigating a call to Catholic Charities from an unknown caller threatening to shoot up the Main Street facility before moving onto Clark, according to an alert issued by the university Tuesday.

The alert said that both police departments are responding to the threat and launching an investigation. No additional information was immediately available from University Police. 

Clark is asking community members to report any suspicious behavior or individuals to the University Police immediately at 508-793-7575.

The reported threat comes on the heels of last week's school shooting in Newtown, Ct. that took the lives of 26, including 20 children, and the arrest of a Holy Cross student for allegedly posting online threats to shoot up a movie theater in Massachusetts.

UPDATE: The Worcester Police Deparment has identified the caller and deemed the call to Catholic Charities to not be a credible threat to either that institution or Clark University.
