NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - A Tennessee high school will have additional security on campus in the coming days after officials say they found threatening graffiti on a bathroom wall.

Henderson High School Principal Bob Cotter sent a note home to parents saying the note threatening a shooting at the school on Friday turned up in the girl’s bathroom. Cotter says law enforcement agencies have concluded that there’s no validity to the threat, but extra security will be available as a precaution.

Schools spokesman Jeremy Johnson told The Tennessean (https://tnne.ws/1vkAvpw) school officials met the Sumner County Sheriff’s Office and the Hendersonville Police Department to discuss the threat and provide extra police protection on Friday.

Johnson says the graffiti incident was investigated by Sumner County Sheriff’s Office deputies who oversee the school resource officer program.
