WACO, Texas (KWTX) Midway High School Principal Alison Smith sent an email to parents Wednesday in hopes of heading off rumors before they spread about remarks that were made in jest in a class.

“Two students made comments in jest about who ‘looks like a school shooter’ in their class, and further inappropriate responses were made in retort,” Smith wrote.

“At no time was a serious threat made, but this was in front of a large group of people who may have misinterpreted the conversation and may perpetuate it.”

Administrators and school resource officers did investigate the incident, however, she said.

“Please be reassured that there was no intent for a threat on our campus and please help quell rumors that may arise from this situation,” Smith wrote.
