Rumors on Facebook and Twitter about a student taking a gun to Dundalk High School today are unfounded, according to Baltimore County Police Department officials.
The department is aware of the rumors and investigated the situation, according to police Cpl. Cathy Batton.
"We have not been able to substantiate any credible threat to the school," she wrote in an email to Patch. "Additional police personnel have been assigned to the school as a precautionary measure."
The school has not been locked down today, Batton said.
