WEST FARGO, N.D. (AP) — School officials in West Fargo are investigating threats a middle school student allegedly made about a school shooting.

According to West Fargo Public Schools, a group of students at Cheney Middle School spoke to the school’s administration toward the end of the school day Wednesday about threats they were hearing from a fellow student about a school shooting.

In a statement, the district says the child’s parents were contacted and his locker was searched, but nothing was found.

The district says the student was not in school Thursday and also will be out of school Friday as the alleged threats are investigated.
