First responders

A large contingent of first responders line the road Friday afternoon leading up to Line Mountain Middle/High School in Mandata following an active shooter report.

MANDATA — State police said the individuals responsible for Friday's "swatting" incident at Line Mountain Middle/High School have been identified.

Police did not provide names or addresses, but said those involved "have no known connection to the school district or this area."

Tuesday afternoon's update from Trooper Richard L. Blair said state police worked with the FBI and other law enforcement agencies to identify those responsible.

The investigation is not complete, but no further information will be released at this time, Blair said.

"There is no danger to the public due to this incident," he said.
