UPDATE (7:10 p.m.): Mobile County Public Schools told WKRG an earlier release from the Mobile County Sheriff’s Office about a possible threat to a local school was not correct.

MCPSS clarified to WKRG News 5 that the Grand Bay Middle School threat involved only two middle school students, not four. There is no age given for the students who posed the threat.

According to the update, “kids were using snapchat and a threat was shared between them. Another student saw it and told school admin.”

Authorities came and removed the two students from the middle school yesterday, Tuesday.

As for the other two students, MCPSS said it was “students being stupid,” and it happened off campus.
