Franklin Police statement regarding Saturday night incident at Centennial High School

Post Date:09/22/2019 5:00 PM

At 10:50 Saturday night, Franklin Police responded to Centennial High School after receiving several reports of a juvenile with a gun. Students were present at the high school last night for a dance. Concern by students and their parents increased after seeing a large police response to the school.

Responding officers coordinated with Williamson County Deputies, who were providing security at the dance, and school administration to determine there was no danger, and that the reports were unfounded. We take these types of reports very seriously, moving quickly to identify any potential threat so we can ensure the safety of our citizens.
