CLINTON, SC (FOX Carolina) -

The Clinton Police Department said an increased law enforcement presence was at Clinton High School on Monday after a threatening message was found.

According to officers, a statement written on a bathroom wall implied that something was going to happen on Mar. 25. Investigators believe the date was meant to be Mar. 26, which is Monday.

Another threat was discovered Monday morning with the words "shooting this school up" in it, the Laurens County School District said.

Out of an abundance of caution, police had an increased presence at the school.

Officers said misinformation has been circulating about the incident on social media.

Anyone with information on the threats is asked to contact Clinton High School at 864-938-1843.
