[ARCHIVED] Columbus Police continue to investigate school shooting call


The Columbus Police Department will be working with fellow Nebraska law enforcement agencies to investigate the school shooting call that was received this morning.

“We have been advised by Kearney, Hastings, Valentine, Grand Island and Omaha that they also received similar calls today at about the same time,” Columbus Police Capt. Doug Molczyk said. “We are currently working this case and will be coordinating our investigation into this situation with those agencies.”

At approximately 9:10 a.m. Thursday, March 2nd, the Platte County Joint Communications Center received a report of three students shot in the math room at Scotus Central High School, 1554 18th Ave.

According to Molczyk, CPD officers responded. Columbus Police cleared the building and found there was nothing to substantiate the report.

“The Columbus Police would like to thank the administration and the student body of Scotus Central Catholic High School for their cooperation during this situation,” Molczyk said.
