A social media post October 29 saying a high school student may have brought a gun to Mt. Pleasant High School turned out to be a “prank,” Mt. Pleasant Police Public Information Officer Autume Balcom said in a press release Wednesday.

Balcom reported that, “The student admitted to the post and stated it was meant as a prank.”

She said, “There have been no additional threats on social media since the original post.”

The Mt. Pleasant High School followed proper safety procedures and worked with the MPPD to investigate the possible threat, she said.

“There is no safety risk to students, staff or public,” she said in the Wednesday release.
