Three students have been arrested and charged after a fake threat against Gallatin High School was posted on social media.
Officials with Sumner County Schools said the school’s principal was notified of a possible threat late Monday afternoon.
A group of students were pictured on social media holding an airsoft rifle, joking that the threat was real.
After a joint investigation between police and the school, the rumor turned out to be false.
Three students were arrested and charged in the incident.
School officials said this is a good reminder for parents to have a conversation with their children about social media.
Parents were also notified of the issue and extra police was present on campus, Tuesday.
