A possible threat to a local school turns out to be a false alarm. Calhoun County Sheriff Matthew Wade says that School resource officers at Weaver High School this morning received a report of a possible threat being posted on the popular app SnapChat.
The school was put on lockdown, the student accused of making the threat was removed from the school, and a weapons detection K-9 searched the school. Wade says that the student’s parents were cooperative and that investigators searched the student’s home and downloaded content from his cell phone.
Several other students were also interviewed by investigators, but no evidence was found that the accused student actually made any kind of threat.
