HOLMES COUNTY, Fla. - The Holmes County Sheriff’s Office is continuing to investigate the report of an alleged threat made on a school bus.
Early in the afternoon of Wednesday, April 4, 2018, HCSO was advised of an alleged threat that occurred on Holmes District School Bus #58.
Information received alleged that a student overheard a Holmes County High School student state he was going to bring a gun on the bus.
