A Snapchat group message in which a student suggested they would use a ‘MAC‘ gun caused school administration to notify law enforcement on Thurs., Dec. 12, according to an email from principal Dr. Karen Ritter.

No official statement has been issued regarding the threat’s credibility, but Ritter’s email indicated the threat was made as a part of a personal dispute.

The students in the group chat were identified by school administration, who then notified police. Law enforcement has been in contact with the student who sent the threat, along with the student’s parents. It is not yet clear if there will be a criminal investigation.
