Superintendent: Email threat not made locally

SIOUX FALLS (AP) — The superintendent of the Sioux Falls School District says an email threat of a shooting at Roosevelt High School is an act of "cyber-terrorism" that is not traceable, but was not made locally.

The Argus Leader reports that besides increased security at the high school Thursday, Superintendent Brian Maher says counselors were available to students who were anxious about the threat.

Police say the threat had also been received by other agencies and businesses in the area and is similar to other email hoaxes have been received across the country.
