SOMERSWORTH, N.H. (AP) — Police in New Hampshire say a student allegedly threatened to commit a mass shooting at Somersworth High School.

Somersworth police said Tuesday they had received information that the student had threatened he or she was going to “shoot up the school.” Foster’s Daily Democrat reports police were unable to verify with certainty the statement was actually made, so no charges have been filed.

The student in question was removed from class and interviewed. Police say no weapons were found on the student’s person or on the student’s property.

Superintendent Lori Lane says the student was dismissed for the day after meeting with school officials. An automated call went out to parents informing them of the alleged threat around 3 p.m. Tuesday.
