After threats, officers patrol Beaverton school

BEAVERTON — Police officers patrolled Beaverton High School on Tuesday morning to ease the minds of parents and students worried about social media threats.

Authorities say two students made Instagram posts last week that threatened violence Tuesday. Police said they soon determined the students didn't have access to weapons, and the threats weren't credible.

Principal Anne Erwin told The Oregonian the students were not in school Tuesday and will be disciplined. It was the first day of classes after the Thanksgiving break.

Erwin says the she's been aware of the posts for some time, and last week they turned from insulting to threatening. She says they got a larger audience when one was tweeted on Monday, raising concern among students and parents.

Police say their investigation could lead to criminal charges.
