The Glenn County Sheriff’s Office says that a recent social media post that threatened to “shoot up” Willows High School is not credible.
According to deputies, they received a report of a possible threat to Willows High School by a student’s Snapchat photo.
Authorities say that the photo contained a Willows High School student holding a firearm and wearing a mask captioning the picture with “guess who is shooting up the school Monday.”
The student distributed that picture amongst his friends and reached the sheriff’s office, which prompted authorities to have an in-depth interview with the student and his guardians.
Deputies determined that the student did not have the intent or means to carry out the act and the teenager was referred to the Glenn County Juvenile Probation for further evaluation.
The Glenn County Sheriff’s Office would like to remind the public that students are not in any danger as a result of the incident.
Willows High School will continue to have classes on Monday.
