UPDATE: Columbus ISD Says Juvenile That Made Shooting Threat Has Been Identified

Nonetheless, the school district will have a strong police presence on Tuesday

The Columbus Independent School District (CSID) announced Monday that a juvenile who had threatened with a shooting has been identified and “there is no longer a danger.”

In a statement posted on its website, the CISD detailed that the suspect is a juvenile and, therefore, school officials can’t provide further information. 

Students reportedly alerted parents about the social media post regarding the threat and Columbus ISD Superintendent Brian Morris confirmed to News 88.7 it was made on Snapchat.

The school district will have a strong police presence on Tuesday and is asking parents to continue to monitor their children’s social media.

Columbus ISD is 80 miles west of Houston.
