ALBUQUERQUE, N.M.— A social media threat that circulated among Hobbs High School students has been deemed “not credible.”

The Hobbs Police Department said its officers investigated the source of the social media post and located the guardian of the student who created it.

The guardian told the officers that she saw a post on Facebook, which she interpreted to say there was going to be a school shooting.

Officers say the student then created another social media post, warning others about the potential school shooting.

Police believe the information about the school shooting stemmed from a previous incident that has been resolved.

Police believe the student had good intentions by sharing the warning about a potential school shooting. However, they say people should report threats to police, rather than posting unverified information online.
