Additional police presence was ordered at Indian Trail High School and Academy and Mahone Middle School after a vague threat was called into the Kenosha Police Department early Thursday.

A person called 911 at 2:51 a.m. saying there was going to be a school shooting over the next few days at Indian Trail, 6800 60th St., or Mahone, 6900 60th St.

The call was made from the area of the 5200 block of 43rd Street, likely from an inactive cellphone because the call number did not show to 911 dispatchers, police said.

Tanya Ruder, spokeswoman for the Kenosha Unified School District, said police notified the district, which informed families at both schools through automated messages.

Ruder said Kenosha Police will have squads on site at Mahone and Indian Trail throughout the remainder of the week, and an off-duty officer will be on site at Mahone. A school resource officer is stationed as usual at Indian Trail.

Anyone with information regarding the threat is asked to immediately contact the Kenosha Police Department at 262-656-1234
