LANCASTER COUNTY, Pa. – Threats of a Columbine style shooting late this afternoon, forced Manheim Central School District officials to cancel tonight’s high school graduation ceremony.
The event was originally scheduled at the LCBC Church.
In a posting on the district’s webpage, school district officials said that the decision was made to postpone graduation after the district and Manheim Borough Police had received reports of a threat made by a student and possibly others were making threats, referencing the 1999 Columbine High School shootings.
That unidentified student has been taken custody. The investigation continues, with the possibly of more arrests.
