A picture of a noose was found hanging inside a DFW high school on Thursday.

According to NBCDFW, the Weatherford Independent School District said the incident happened in December.

The noose was found outside of the school’s auditorium.

A Facebook post showing the noose said, “What happens when someone actually gets hurt over things like this on either side? Will that be just kids being kids?”

It was reported that several parents reacted to the photo. One post called the incident “disgusting.”

Weatherford ISD made this statement on the incident:

Weatherford ISD is aware of a photo of an inappropriate incident that was posted on social media today showing a noose hanging from the upper level outside of the Durant Auditorium at Weatherford High School. This photo is from an incident that occurred in early December. The student that was involved was immediately identified and consequences were enacted according to the WISD Student Code of Conduct.

We encourage anyone who is aware of any inappropriate actions or comments related to our schools to immediately contact a school administrator so the matter can be fully investigated and addressed.
