LINDEN, NJ - A social media threat against a Linden high school faculty member prompted investigation, authorities say.

Linden police released a statement, saying around 2:15 p.m. today, a social media threat was quickly deemed not to be credible, as a safety precaution students were released in a controlled dismissal as scheduled with an additional police presence.

A sweep of the school was made by the Linden Police Department, with assistance from the Union County Police Department, and the area was deemed safe.  All students and staff members are safe, and after school activities are going on as scheduled.
