BEAUMONT, Texas — East Chambers ISD says after further investigation, a threatening statement made by an unnamed student presented 'no credible threat' to the junior high campus. 

"After further investigation, working through all of our protocols and working with law enforcement, ECISD reports that we found no credible threat to our junior high campus, its student body or staff, but, as always, we remain vigilant," Superintendent Scott Campbell said in a statement. 

The district says there may have been a social media post that escalated a dispute between a few students. 

The district is not naming the student and has found no evidence to credit the information.

12News received a phone call from a parent notifying us about a post on Snapchat that showed a gun and referenced a hit list.

"We also received information from one individual that the student may have extended the threat through social media; however, we have found no evidence to support that rumor; nevertheless, law enforcement has taken action," an earlier ECISD statement said.  

The district responded to a threat and reported social media post on their Facebook page Wednesday. 

ECISD statement, released at 12:14 p.m. Wednesday: 

We became aware of a situation where a juvenile student at the junior high, whom we cannot name because of federal law, made threatening statements toward some other student or students. We have and continue to take all action necessary regarding this situation and parents should know that this student is suspended and not in school. We also received information from one individual that the student may have extended the threat through social media; however, we have found no evidence to support that rumor; nevertheless, law enforcement has taken action. ECISD will never tolerate a threat to our students, and we intend to enforce the full of weight of law and our code of conduct in this matter and any similar threat in the future. If anybody has additional information that may assist law enforcement, you may call the Chambers County Sheriff's office.

Parents, please remind your children that we will take all threats seriously and that if your child becomes aware of information that would assist the district in keeping them safe, please come forward and say something.

ECISD statement, released 5:30 p.m. Wednesday: 

As a follow up, after further investigation, working through all of our protocols and working with law enforcement, ECISD reports that we found no credible threat to our junior high campus, its student body or staff, but, as always, we remain vigilant. The reason we publicly disclosed the events of today was out of an abundance of caution. An individual had reported to us that there might be a social media post that escalated a dispute between a few students. There was no evidence, after our investigation, that a post was actually made or that there was a threat to our campus. I want to thank the community for your feedback and support. Together, we make us safer.
