Uniformed officers and plain clothes detectives are on the campus of Antelope School in Red Bluff today following a threat posted on Instagram.

That's despite the fact that Tehama County Sheriff's officials say the threat was not credible, and that the campus is safe.

A news release says the threat came Wednesday night from a 12 year old boy, who recorded a screen shot post saying,"I'm going to kill everyone. I'm going to shoot up Antelope".

Deputies responded to the school to sweep the area for anything suspicious, and as the investigation was unfolding ... the parents of the boy contacted the sheriff's office to say their son admitted to creating the post as a hoax.

The boy is a student within the Antelope school district and the family is cooperating with law enforcement.

It certainly didn't feel like early December around northern California this afternoon with plentiful sunshine and much warmer than average highs. A cold front is approaching, but we unfortunately don't have rain or snow in our forecast.
