On Wednesday evening, the Taft Police Department received a tip about a Snapchat post by a young girl who claimed they had a gun and would shoot someone in a 4th period class Thursday, possibly at Lincoln Jr. High School or at the Taft High School.

The investigation revealed there is no credible threat and no evidence of who might be making the threats.

Rumors circulated this morning and parents became concerned.

Officers have been working closely with the Taft Superintendent of Schools Julie Graves and so far it is just a bunch of rumors.

School Resource Officers are on alert but there is no lockdowns in place.
