HAYS COUNTY, Texas -- A student has been detained at Hays High School for threatening to harm others.
Principal David Pierce sent a letter to parents on Monday explaining what happened earlier in the day. Pierce stated that a student sent a text to one of his friends saying he wanted to harm others at the school.
The Hays County Sheriff's Office arrived to investigate the situation and questioned the student. Pierce said the student had no weapons on him.
"The safety of all students is essential at Hays High School. Thank you for continuing to encourage your children to report anything they consider to be a safety concern," Pierce said in the letter.
There was no interruption to the school day as authorities investigated.
Hays Consolidated School District spokesman Tim Savoy told KVUE he doesn't believe the Hays County Sheriff's Office will be filing criminal charges.
