Investigators determined that the student took a photo of himself and sent it to another student saying, "New gun."

The receiving student then sent the photo to another student adding text that said, “watch out because (the student) might bring the gun to school.”

"LCSO and LCSD2 contacted the student’s parents and the student immediately," the press release reads. "It was determined there was no threat made to the school and there is no threat to public safety."

The incident remains under investigation by the sheriff's office and the school district.
