Clarion, PA – A shooting threat led some Clarion-area bars and restaurants to ramp up their security over the weekend.

The incident started when a man sent a threatening Facebook message to a woman. From there, other social media posts popped up, warning locals that “someone is planning on shooting up a Clarion bar.”

No charges have been filed against the known but unnamed man, but some Clarion County residents took matters into their own hands, handing out flyers with the man’s name, photo, and birth date to the bars and restaurants.

Bar managers say they did end up placing more bouncers outside and warned their staff members. However, no more threats happened, and they say it seemed like a normal night.

Police are continuing to investigate the situation.
