Ocean County as well as Monmouth, Mercer, Middlesex and Essex County have all experienced calls for active shooters in schools. In Ocean County it was Jackson, Toms River and Barnegat all of which have been unfounded. In Monmouth County it happened at the Monmouth Career Center also determined to be unfounded. We have reports of swatting incidents in East Brunswick, Newark and Possibly Hamilton. This is a very serious situation as it takes emergency resources away from and delays responses to true emergencies. We also received unconfirmed reports that this may now be happening in Texas, Florida and South Carolina. we are investigating and will get official details up on our page as they become available.
Manchester Township has increased police presence near it’s schools.
Followers sent us pictures of the situation outside Monmouth Career Center and a video inside Barnegat High School.
