Increased security at Robert E. Lee High School following rumored threat

TYLER, TX (KLTV) - The Tyler Independent School District has stepped up security at Robert E. Lee High School today.

The increased patrols follow a rumored threat on campus by a fellow student, but the district deemed it a "verbal false alarm."

Dawn Parnell with Tyler ISD Communications says, they "take any and every threat seriously", and the increased security was out of an abundance of caution.
