TOLEDO, OH (Toledo News Now) -

Washington Local Schools says it has investigated a threat of a shooting at Whitmer High School and found the threat has "no credibility."

The district says a student posted on Facebook on Sunday evening that there would be a shooting at Whitmer High School Monday, May 5. District leaders say they met with the student responsible, who admitted she fabricated the post for attention.

The student has not been charged at this time. The district says leaders will be meeting with her parents or guardians to "determine a consequence."

The district notified parents of the threat through a recorded phone message Monday.
