  BRICK – Even though the threat of a student bringing a gun to Brick Township High School wound up being unfounded, officials said they ask any information like this to be sent to them.

  A social media post from a parent said that their child had heard of another student who threatened to “shoot up the school.”

  District officials said that they and the Brick Township Police Department investigated and said “the accusation was unfounded and that there is no credible threat.”

  A message from the district thanked the police department and Chief James Riccio for their response.

  “Brick Schools is committed to the safety and wellbeing of all our students, staff, parents, and community. If anyone needs to share information, please contact the district through the WeTip link on our district website (please remember if you ‘see something or hear something, say something’).”
