BRUCEVILLE-EDDY, Texas — Concern over a potential threat at Bruceville-Eddy High School resulted in a student being removed, but an investigation later determined no threats were actually made to the campus, according to officials.

In the statement released via Facebook, Bruceville-Eddy ISD Superintendent Richard Kilgore said the possible threat revolved around the student "making a list of people they get along with, people they would rather not be around and people they tolerate."

Kilgore said the campus was never on lockdown, no one was arrested, no weapon or ammunition were found at the school, and the student was removed during the investigation.
