CORINTH, Miss. (WTVA) - Parents were on alert Monday after they got wind of a reported threat to Corinth High School. 

"I was shocked, it was scary," said Cheryl Smith, whose granddaughter is a middle-schooler. "To know that you've got a granddaughter that could be in danger. It's kind of scary."

The news also worried students. 

"When he saw it, he took screenshots and sent me the post and said we got to move, said Rochelle Hughuey of her son. "This can't be going on here.

In a statement released on Facebook, Corinth police say they received the report Saturday night.


Police in Corinth were stationed at all three schools as a precautionary measure. 

Still fresh in many minds of many, is the high school shooting in Parkland, Florida that took the lives of 17 people. 

"Because of the Florida shooting, she did not feel comfortable," commented Smith. "I know there's cops in all of the schools, but it's still very unnerving."

The investigation so far has found that there is no credible evidence of the threat made through Snapchat at this time.
