SULLIVAN COUNTY, Ind. (WTHI) - A social media hoax is causing concern in Sullivan County.

Sheriff Clark Cottom says the worry began in the community late Wednesday night.

That's after a Facebook post was shared locally.

The post "loosely" referred to "SHS" as in Sullivan High School.

Cottom says the original post originated out of Ohio.

It was investigated and determined to be a hoax.

Sullivan County sheriff officials have notified local school administrators.
