Lowell Police: Student Makes Snapchat Gun Threat

Lowell Police: Student Makes Snapchat Gun Threat

Roberts says multiple teams of investigators are working with Snapchat and interviewing students.

"On Wednesday, Oct. 11, the administration at Cody High School became aware of a verbal threat made by a student from Cody High School", he said. The source of these rumors was a comment made by a student previous year, which was addressed by the school and by law enforcement at that time.

Police said they're looking into the matter and called it a rumor, adding that it's common given the date.

That speculation turned into rumor that exploded Thursday night and got the attention of law enforcement, according to Eby.

Eby said it spiraled into a big rumor circulating the schools and then culminated in a Snapchat post that began circulating around 7 p.m.

Eby and Culler stressed that no threat was ever made or received by any school in the district.

The male student at Powhatan High School was charged with making threats to commit serious bodily harm to persons on school property. "As a result of this investigation, both school and legal disciplinary action has been taken". "We can't find a source of any credible threat, but I put a few extra guys on just to err on the side of caution and put people at ease". However, we are also careful not to assist in the spread of misinformation which is sometimes spread by students out of a desire to disturb or skip school.

After the post was seen by police early Friday morning, they contacted the staff at Lowell Public Schools.
