Another tense day at Edwardsville High School. According to a statement from the school district, at least one student is in custody after threatening to bring a gun to school. That student is now being questioned by police, and charges may be filed.
The student was not in possession of a weapon and no weapon was found on school property. A Snapchat was also sent out from a student telling others what the student had said. Those students are in the process of being identified in an attempt to stop the continuation of social media posts. Superintendent Dr. Jason Henderson commends the students who reported the potentially dangerous situation, as well as the administration and the Edwardsville Police Department for responding quickly to the report.
