SNOHOMISH, Wash. — Snohomish County deputies said a lockdown at Snohomish High School has been lifted.

At 10:54 a.m. Thursday, the sheriff’s office tweeted that deputies were investigating a report that information seen on social media indicated there may be a weapon on campus.

It was not believed there was any threat of immediate danger.

Deputies said there was no weapon found on campus and the lockdown was lifted by 12:10 p.m.

During the investigation, deputies discovered there were students discussing a social media post about a possible school threat on Thursday.

Out of an abundance of caution, the school was placed in lockdown while deputies investigated.

Officers said they discovered the post was the same online post that has affected other high schools in the area and was generated from outside of Washington.
