Police and school district officials say two threats to shoot students at Bonita Vista High School that spread on social media Sunday were described as unsubstantiated.
But extra law enforcement were placed on campus as a precauition.
The first threat was of a screenshot of an Instagram comment that read, "Shooting up on the campus Monday. I like some of you. Try to skip school if you value your life." Another threat coming out around 9:30 p.m. with a similar message.
The Sweetwater Union High School District sent 10News this statement:
