An alleged threat made at Dexter Middle School in Whittier does not constitute a real danger, Whittier police said Sunday night.

Police received several calls from parents, concerned about a social media post that alluded to a threat of showing up to the school with a gun.

After contacting the student who made the post and his parents, officers determined that the student did not have a gun, nor access to one.

The Whittier Police Department will still have an officer at the middle school on Monday as a precaution.
