Just before 2 p.m. Pittsburgh Police from Zone 5 were contacted by Pittsburgh Public School Police requesting assistance regarding a possible threat to Westinghouse High School on the 1100 block of N. Murtland Street.
Pittsburgh Police and PPS Police are working closely together to determine whether the threat is credible.
Police take all threats to the community seriously, especially as they might pertain to children.
Out of an abundance of caution they have increased patrols around the school and surrounding area.
Any inquiries about the school's safety protocol regarding this incident should be directed to Pittsburgh Public Schools.
