After two weeks of rumored hit lists and possible school shootings, police decided to patrol Woodland Park High School to ease the minds of students.
3 students have been arrested in recent weeks at Woodland Park High School. The ensuing rumors, coupled with the recent school shooting in Minnesota, have put students on edge.
Police Chief Robert Larson says a rumored hit list never existed and no one ever had plans of carrying out a school shooting.
Still, police felt in necessary to have a presence at the school.
The rumors began flying after a 14-year-old boy was arrested after shooting out a car window with a BB gun in early March.
Another student was arrested later in connection with a fight, and rumors spread about a hit list of students who talked to police. Then a 15-year-old girl was arrested for stealing a gun from her parents.
