Note leads to police increase at 2 Salina schools

SALINA, Kan. (AP) — Security has been beefed up at two Salina high schools after a staff member at one of the schools found a note indicating there would be violence there.

The Salina Journal (http://bit.ly/1nehnKC ) reports the vaguely threatening note was found Tuesday by a staff member at Salina Central High School. The next day a cellphone that appeared to have been shot with a firearm was found in a school office.

Security measures include increasing the number of police officers at the school and monitoring access to the building. Salina police spokesman Capt. Mike Sweeney says police presence at South High School also has been increased.

A spokeswoman for the school district declined to provide any specifics about the threat.
