Several Wallingford schools threatened in social media post

WALLINGFORD — Police have stepped up their patrols after they say a threatening Snapchat post was found Tuesday night.

Police say an anonymous person had posted on Snapchat with three schools circled. There was a message that there would be someone murdered.

Police say there is an increased presenceĀ at the schools this morning, but they don’t consider the threat credible.
