UPDATE: Littlefield Police respond to school threats

Posted: Updated:

**UPDATE**

Chief Ross Hester with Littlefield PD announced there is no threat.

Reports show this an ongoing issue between two minors. The threat stems from a photo of a girl holding a gun posted several years ago. The text in the photo was altered to indicate the girl was going to open fire on a local school.

The incident is still under investigation.
