The Sheriff's Department and school administrators quashed rumors of a student hit list for the campuses of Standard Middle School and North High Tuesday.
The Sheriff's Department received its first anonymous report of a possible upcoming shooting at Standard Middle School Wednesday evening.
That was followed by a flood of calls from other concerned parents as the rumors spread and was augmented on several social media sites, a Sherriff's watch commander told 17 News early Tuesday.
The threat eventually grew to include North High School.
"Deputies located the juveniles at the source of the rumors and determined that the reports of a 'hit list' and upcoming shooting on the school campus were not true," the Sheriff's Department reported in a news release. "Deputies exhausted all investigative leads in this case and no credible threats to Standard Middle School were substantiated."
Deputies reported they didn't plan on pursuing criminal charges.
