NEEDVILLE, Texas — Parents of students in the Needville Independent School District have spent the better part of the week on edge.
According to the Fort Bend County Sheriff's Office, rumors that started Tuesday claimed a student at the town's high school was going to carry out an "unspecified threat."
Sheriff's investigators were at the school on Thursday. Deputies questioned several students, including the one who supposedly made the threats. In a post on its Facebook page Friday night the Fort Bend County Sheriff's Office says it found "no evidence of actual threats" or "means for the students to carry out any threats."
According to Major Chad Norvell, the sheriff's office urged the Needville ISD to alert parents of the rumors and the deputies investigation. Major Norvell said when the school district didn't, the sheriff's office did.
Deputies haven't identified the student involved in its investigation but say the school did take disciplinary action. The student hasn't been charged with a crime, but investigators have turned their case over to the Fort Bend County District Attorney's Office.
