The Tietgenskolen Business High School in Odense has been closed for the day
after the school received a letter this morning threatening a shooting
“I am shocked,” says Rector Gitte Bargholt.
The decision to close the school and send 200 pupils who had already arrived
home, came after a school clerk opened a typewritten letter early this
morning containing the threat of a shooting at the school later in the day.
“We take this sort of threat very seriously, so we are taking no chances and
investigating the incident as a serious threat,” says Funen Police Duty
Officer Kim Munksgaard Hansen.
Bargholt says a guard company will be patrolling the school in the next few
days so that pupils and staff can feel safe.
