KEIZER, Ore. (KOIN) — A number of houses were tagged with violent school threats overnight Wednesday.

Keizer Police said the graffiti was first discovered on a garage door in the 1400 block of Horizon Ridge Drive NE by a newspaper delivery man. Two other homes on the same street were also vandalized as well as the fence of a home in the 6800 block of Jakewood Court NE.

Salem-Keizer School District spokesperson Lillian Govus told KOIN 6 that the tags threatened McKay High School and bombings. The graffiti also mentioned the Sandy Hook school shooting.

“We’ll just hope that it’s all empty threats,” neighbor Steve Henshaw said.

Govus says extra security was in place at McKay High School, McNary High School and Gubser Elementary School.

Police are working to determine the credibility of the threats.

“Because this threat was so very visual and so very public, it’s generated a lot of concern across the district,” Govus said.
