FLOMATON, AL (WKRG) — Two schools in Escambia County, Alabama were placed on a lockdown for the reported threat of “Flomo Klowns” in the area.

The clowns were spotted near the grounds of Flomaton High School and Escambia County High School in Atmore, prompting school officials to put the schools on lock down early Thursday after similar incidents have occurred in other southern states.

The “Flomo Klowns” have a Facebook page where they say, “I kill people for a living.” There is more threatening language on their Facebook page, including several gun emojis and one post from Thursday stating, “it’s going down tonight.”

WKRG was told there was no credible threat of a gun on the campus of either school. Mike Lambert, a Chief Deputy with the Escambia County Sheriff’s Office, says the situation is being taken “seriously.”
