All clear given after shooting threats at Hollywood, SW Miami-Dade schools

HOLLYWOOD, FLA. (WSVN) - Authorities have given the all clear at two South Florida schools, Monday, after shooting threats appeared on social media.

Police said someone posted a threat on Twitter to shoot up Driftwood Middle School in Hollywood. School district officials confirmed the school, located at 2751 N. 70th Ave., was operating on a modified lockdown that was later lifted.

The post was later taken down, but, as a precaution, an increased police presence remained around the campus.

A similar scene unfolded at Felix Varela High School in Southwest Miami-Dade. A handful of officers were on the campus, located near Southwest 152nd Avenue and 96th Street, due to a threat that was posted in December claiming there would be a shooting on Monday.

Officials from both districts say the students involved will be disciplined.
