UPDATE: Classes to resume Friday in Mary Walker School District

Posted: Updated:
STEVENS COUNTY, Wash. -

UPDATE: March 22, 2018:

The Stevens County Sheriff's Office has been investigating the threat that canceled classes in the Mary Walker School District on Thursday and says there is no credible threat. 

According to the sheriff's office, the alleged threats stem from an incident that occurred at Mary Walker nine days prior where two students were overheard talking about a “hit list.” The school immediately investigated determining there was no credible threat to the school or student safety, so there was no reason to contact law enforcement or the public at that time. After extensive interviews, the Sheriff’s Office investigation has shown there is no reason to believe any “hit list” exists and no substantiated threats were made by anyone nor directed at any individual.The Sheriff's Office tells KHQ the threat supposedly originated on Snapchat. Detectives have been conducting interviews all day and have so far found nothing. 

Classes will resume as scheduled on Friday.

The Mary Walker School District in Stevens County says they're canceling classes tomorrow because of a threat.

"In the interest of safety, the Mary Walker School District will be closed tomorrow- Thursday, March 22, 2018," the district said in an alert sent out Wednesday evening. 

Someone reportedly posted a threat on social media, warning about a school shooting. We're still looking into it more, but at this point all we know is that administrators are taking this seriously enough to close the schools tomorrow.

    Man accused of assault after putting wife with dementia on leash

    Tuesday, September 18 2018 10:40 AM EDT2018-09-18 14:40:20 GMT

    A Maryland man is facing a simple assault charge after using a dog leash to lead his wife around a Pennsylvania fair because she has late-stage dementia.    West Manchester police say Walter Wolford yanked the 8-inch long red nylon leash, causing his wife's head to jerk back and leave red marks around her throat. But the 66-year-old Hagerstown man says he only gently tugged on the leash, which he uses to keep his wife from getting lost.
