KANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) - Police have increased their presence at a Kansas high school after rumors circulated that people who were angry about the fatal shooting of a 16-year-old last weekend might seek retaliation.

The Kansas City Star (https://bit.ly/16qgWr3 ) reports Turner School District assistant superintendent Jason Dandoy sent a letter home with parents saying that the school was keeping watch over students, but there wasn’t a credible threat at this time.

The school district says about one-third of the students at the school in Kansas City, Kansas, were absent on Tuesday.

Dandoy says some families chose to pick up their children, though most were going about their school day as normal.

Police say Kahlif L’ron Hampton of Kansas City, Kansas, was shot Friday night and died Sunday.
