COATESVILLE, Pa. (CBS) — Coatesville Area School District Police investigated a concerning image that was being circulated on Snapchat early Monday morning.
Police say that the photo consisted of a young man holding a rifle with a caption that indicated he was “going out with a bang.” The same Snapchat user also warned against going to school.
The Snapchat featured the acronym “CHS,” which led to a brief concern that it referred to Coatesville High School.
However, police say the photo was of a student in Clovis, New Mexico and the “CHS” threat referenced Clovis High School.
Coatesville Area School District Police worked with officials in New Mexico to identify that the Snapchat originated there.
The student has been arrested.
