Town of Tonawanda Police quell rumors of potential school shooting

Town of Tonawanda Police assured residents Sunday night that rumors of a possible shooting incident Monday at Herbert Hoover School are unfounded.

In a Facebook posting, police said they have “completed an investigation into the matter and there is no reason for parents to keep their children home.”

Police added, “There will be an increased patrol presence in the area tomorrow.”

The school, which includes elementary and middle school classes, is located at 249 Thorncliff Road, between Delaware Avenue and Colvin Boulevard.
