VERONA - State Police tell NewsChannel 2 they investigated an alleged threat by a Vernon-Verona-Sherill High School student at a school banquet rehearsal last week.

According to VVS Superintendent Martha Group, two people reported hearing a student say "I'm gonna shoot them all." The student has not been identified.

Troopers went to the student's home and interviewed him, and he claimed what he said was "boot them all."

After reviewing the student's social media, police wrapped up their investigation at 3:00 a.m. last Thursday. They say they determined there was no threat or danger to students - or anyone else.

The school then sent parents a text message letting them know what happened.
