Vermont State Police say they have gotten several calls reporting shooting threats at schools across the state. Police say all the calls currently appear to be hoaxes.

They say the calls have been reported to originate from phone numbers or potentially spoofed 802 numbers.

Police believe they are associated with nationwide hoax phone threats of school shootings, bomb threats and other violent events that have proved to be unfounded.

Police, along with the governor’s office and agency of education, are investigating the calls.
