HUNTINGTON – An undisclosed rumor that began on social media Monday morning has resulted in the placement of additional law enforcement officers on the campus of Huntington High School.

School and county officials worked with the Huntington Police Department worked together to investigate the rumor, said Jedd Flowers, director of communications for Cabell County Schools, and HPD determined there was not a credible threat.

However, Flowers said the rumor was continuing to cause concern in the community, so additional officers were sent to the school for the remainder of the day, which is continuing as normal.
