Earlier this morning, ECSS officials announced on its Facebook page they were made aware of the threat.

“We do not believe Escambia County Middle School is the intended target. However, out of an abundance of caution, we will have an increased presence of Atmore Police Officers and Escambia County Sheriffs Deputies on campus Friday, Sept. 24.”
