The two individuals who were engaged in a conversation in a social media chat room which led to last Friday’s incident on the Lawrence High School Campus have been identified, as a result of the investigation and subsequent comprehensive search of the buildings and grounds of the High School Campus. It is now clear that at no time was there any imminent threat to the Campus.
