A possible shooting threat has forced officials in Dubuque to cancel classes for all their schools today.

According to CBS2 News, the Dubuque school district posted the announcement on their Twitter page stating that rumors of a possible shooting incident forced them to close schools out of safety concerns.

"While we have no credible information suggesting an actual threat exists, we are unable to completely rule it out. Because of this, the district has made the decision to cancel classes at Dubuque Senior High School on Friday, Feb. 23, out of an abundance of caution."
