An unnamed person on Twitter has threatened a mass shooting during a Penn State football game this fall. Officials are currently looking into a message posted by @DanielTheDuck8, whose profile has since been deleted.
The message was posted to the social media platform on Wednesday night. In it, the person behind the account threatened to commit the "biggest mass shooting in the history of the world."
The tweet is no longer accessible. However, the account @PSU_Strong, which was tagged in the message, took a screenshot.
The tweeter tagged a number of Penn State-related accounts in the threat.
PennLive reports that Pennsylvania authorities are investigating the threat made against Penn State fans at Beaver Stadium.
Penn State police says there is no imminent threat stemming from the message.
Either way, given the increase in mass shootings over the last few years, all threats like this are extremely frightening.
Hopefully the authorities can resolve the situation before the college football season begins. The Nittany Lions open with a home game against Appalachian State on September 1.
We hope everyone in State College stays safe.
