Fresno police are posted around Edison High School following social media threats that a drive-by shooting would occur at the southwest Fresno school on Wednesday.
“There’s nothing to substantiate it,” said Fresno police spokesman Lt. Joe Gomez. “It’s just a rumor at this point.”
Still, about 10 police officers are around the Edison campus and the school has beefed up its security. Gomez said security guards for other Fresno schools are aware of the Edison threat. As an added precaution, Gomez said police are also patrolling around other Fresno schools.
