A 14-year-old girl was arrested and released to her parents for making online threats to the Medicine Valley Public Schools in Curtis, according to the Nebraska State Patrol.

The threats to “shoot up the whole school of Medicine Valley and kill the new principal” surfaced Tuesday on Snapchat and included a photo of an unidentified man with a gun in each hand, and another on the hood of his pickup, the North Platte Bulletin reported.

The Frontier County Sheriff’s Office responded and secured the school, which remained in session but locked.
