MISSOURI CITY, Texas – Ridge Point High School parents and students were alarmed after a threat was posted on social media and shared overnight Wednesday.
Parents and the Fort Bend County Sheriff are now sending a stern message to students who might be thinking of doing the same thing.
"It didn't look like a joke at all," said Pamela Tomasello, a parent of a 17-year-old at Ridge Point High School who woke up around 5 a.m. in a panic. "My daughter came into my bedroom. I could tell she was upset. She had a very shaky voice, and she said, 'Mom, I think there is a threat.'"
Her 17-year-old went on to show her mother a video of a snapchat that appears to zoom in and out of a class picture.
"The video had been sent multiple times, so it was kinda blurry, but the message was clear," Tomasello said.
A voice in the video that Tomasello saw was heard saying, "No one is safe."
What Tomasello saw on the video was also troubling to her and her daughter.
