Broward County Schools, (AFP) – Police in Broward County, Florida ordered all area schools locked down following a threat that someone was planning to go to a school and start shooting.

Students are being kept in all the county schools and police in the city of Pembroke Pines are investigating the case, said an agent with the Broward County Sheriff’s Department.

The county is located just north of Miami.

“There has been a threat, so for the safety of all our students and staff, all schools at the Broward County school district are on lockdown until further notice,” ran a phone message at Pembroke Pines police station, which is handling the case.

“As this information is updated we will post the information,” the message added.

Pembroke Pines city police did not respond to AFP phone calls.

Police in the morning received what they described as a “credible threat” against the county schools, followed by an e-mail message indicated that “something was going to happen” around Broward County government buildings, the Fort Lauderdale Sun-Sentinel newspaper reported.

Schools Superintendent James Notter told the newspaper that the 230,000 public school students and faculty and employees were placed in lockdown and were safe.
