NEEDVILLE (Covering Katy News) - The Fort Bend County Sheriff's Office has concluded an investigation into claims that a Needville High School student had made threats against his school. The investigation was launched at the request of the Needville Independent School District Police Department.

"On Thursday we were contacted by NISD PD regarding threats allegedly being made by a student," said a post on the sheriff's office Facebook page. "We learned the threats were initially made on Tuesday and the school administered discipline. A detective was sent out Thursday and interviewed several students as well as the one who was supposedly making threats. We did not find any evidence of actual threats other than hearsay, nor did we find a means for the student to carry out any threats."

The student was not arrested, but a report will be forwarded to the District Attorney’s Office.

"We have received multiple calls to our Communications Center from concerned parents and wanted to ensure you all it was investigated and we consider the school to be safe," the FBSCO Facebook post said.

"This information was conveyed to NISD Administration and we encouraged them to distribute it to their parents. Specific questions may be sent to Major Norvell at Chad.norvell@fortbendcountytx.gov
