Prank Call Leads to School Evacuation

The St. Marys school district superintendent sent 6 News this statement regarding the police presence at St. Marys Area High School this afternoon:

"There were unconfirmed reports that shots were fired at the high school. It is believed this is a prank. However all precautions are being taken. All students and staff are safe. Emergency personnel are checking all buildings and grounds."

Thank you, Karen Strugala!

State Police Trooper Bruce Morris, communications director, has since confirmed it was a hoax.
