McAllen ISD alert: Another student detained after posting threat on social media

McAllen ISD police detained another student accused of making a threat on social media, according to an alert sent to parents on Friday.

On Thursday, district police detained a student accused of posting a threatening message on social media. The student later admitted it was a “hoax,” according to the district.

The district said in an alert Friday that another student made a threat that was not directed at anyone or any campus in particular.

The student apologized and “admitted there was no real intent,” according to the alert.

The threats come after a deadly shooting at a Florida high school, where 17 people were killed by a former 19-year-old student. School districts across the Rio Grande Valley say they are investigating possible threats.

On Friday, a Raymondville High School student was arrested after threatening to “shoot up the school,” according to district police.
