Law Enforcement Agencies Respond To Threatening Call To Gilman City School

The Harrison County Sheriff’s Department says a call to the Gilman City School Wednesday reporting a bomb threat is believed to be from out of the area.

The call came in to the department just after 1:30 Wednesday. The Harrison and Daviess County Sheriff’s Departments and the Missouri State Highway Patrol responded to the call. Students had been dismissed earlier in the day and most of the staff members were also off the school campus site.

The threat was made through a phone call. The department reports that caller’s voice was thought to be in a foreign accent not recognized.

A canvas was made of the school, but no suspicious items were found.

There is no threat believed to be apparent for students nor staff.

The investigation is ongoing.
