UPDATE: This investigation has been turned over to the Essex County Prosecutor's Office. More information will be shared as it become available.

LIVINGSTON, NJ — In response to a young woman's Facebook post Sunday evening stating her intention to "shoot up" Livingston High School at 7:40 a.m. on Monday, the school released the following message: 

"We are aware the many students and parents have seen disturbing posts through social media this evening as it pertains to our school. I assure you that we have been in constant contact with the Livingston Police Department throughout the night. The police have been involved in this situation as part of an active and ongoing investigation.

"Please know the Livingston Police Department does not view this as a credible threat. At the same time, in the interest of the safety of our students and school community, police presence and involvement at LHS will be highlighted over the next several days.

"To the extent further information is available to share with you, we will do so at the appropriate time." 

The school also confirmed that all classes and activities scheduled for Monday, Sept. 12 will continue as planned. 

The note was written to parents on Sunday after a young woman allegedly took to Facebook complaining of being severely bullied at the school. The post stated that Monday would be "judgment day" for anyone who gets in her way or attempts to stop her. 

(It should be noted that the student's Facebook account could have been hacked or a false account could have been made in her name.)

Livingston Public Schools, in conjunction with the Livingston Police Department, have determined that this is not a credible threat, but stated that they will take necessary precautions to ensure the safety of both the students and the community.
