Park City students joke about 'shooting up the school'

Two Park City students are being kept at home Wednesday after joking about “shooting up” their school.

Parents of students at Ecker Hill Middle School reached out to the Summit County Sheriff’s Office late Tuesday after hearing reports of a possible threat shared on social media.

According to officials, students were sharing a post that read “stay home tomorrow because there will be a shooting.”

An investigation found that two students had made a “joke” about a school shooting. Deputies were able to locate the students and their parents, and determined the threat was “made jokingly” and there were no weapons involved.
