A shooting threat directed at Gilbert Stuart Middle School was reported by two individuals who said their children had shown them a disturbring message on their phone: 

“According to police, the message from an unknown phone said the following, “I hate Ms. Onye (Principal of Gilbert Stuart Middle School) … On Friday, October 29, I am going to take my dad’s shotgun and shoot her…after that I will go into my first period class and shoot it up.”

Providence Police Major David Lapatin said “We’re investigating and it seems like there is no substance [to the threat]. It appears to be TiKTok related.”
