Cairo, Georgia-- Police are making headway in their investigation of a gun threat at Shiver Elementary School in Cairo.

It was written on the wall of a boy's restroom last week. It warned that someone would bring a gun to a school dance and kill everyone there, including teachers. Sheriff Harry Young says investigators have narrowed the case down from six suspects to two.

"A threat like that is very serious, and we're not going to give up on it until we find out who did it. It makes all the parents and other students at the school a lot more comfortable knowing something is going to be done," says Young.

Young expects the GBI crime lab in Atlanta to finish analyzing handwriting samples after the holidays. In the meantime, he says deputies will routinely patrol Shiver.
