CHICAGO — Whitney Young High School was on a soft lockdown Wednesday after another threat was discovered.

Three students found a second message in the girls' bathroom on Tuesday. The high school was already on high alert since Friday, when a threat was found carved on a bathroom stall.

Whitney Young's principal said it's possible that the second threat may be a joke, but the school is taking the matter seriously.

The threat is being investigated by authorities.

Parents and guardians of students at Whitney Young will gather in a sign of solidarity at the corner of Laflin Street and Jackson Boulevard at 7:30 a.m. Wednesday.
