HOUSTON - An investigation is underway after officials with Aldine ISD said one of its high schools "was the subject of several social media threats" Wednesday.
The threats were made at Eisenhower High School in Acres Homes but police say the threats "appear to be unsubstantiated." As a precaution, additional officers with Aldine ISD were called out and are expected to remain there for the remainder of the week.
This threat comes a day after Heights High School with Houston ISD was the subject of a school shooting threat, which later was found to be a hoax.
In a statement, Aldine ISD said it is taking the threats seriously and those responsible for making the threat will be held accountable.
