SAGINAW TOWNSHIP, MI (WNEM) -

Authorities are stepping up patrols Wednesday at a Mid-Michigan high school after a "non-credible" threat was made on social media. 

Chief Don Pussehl with the Saginaw Township Police Department said his officers took a report from an assistant principal at Heritage High School about 9:30 p.m. Tuesday about a potential threat seen on social media.

The principal told police students saw a Snapchat video which showed a teen saying he would shoot up “Heritage.” The video was less than five seconds long.

Pussehl said students and teachers watched the video and did not recognize the teen.

“It is uncertain as to where the video originated or what ‘Heritage’ the suspect is talking about,” Pussehl said.

The school resource officer will continue the investigate.

Heritage High School was also given extra patrol coverage throughout the day Wednesday, Pussehl said.
