Columbia Hickman High School’s homecoming dance ended early on Saturday, after rumors about someone having a gun.
Hickman principal Tony Gragnani has sent an e-mail to parents, saying they were alerted to a number of rumors about someone having a gun. The principal says each report was thoroughly investigated by staff, district safety and security and by CPD, and that none of the reports have been found to be credible.
He says they treat all threats seriously, adding that Kewpie students raised $27,000 during the week for local and national charities.
Some parents tell ABC-17 News that some students scaled fences to flee the outdoor dance.
