Rumor prompts extra security at high school in Gwinnett County

GRAYSON, GA (CBS46) -

A rumor that a student was planning violence at Grayson High School spread quickly among students early Friday morning, prompting extra security at the school.

A CBS Atlanta viewer who did not want to be identified said the rumor involved a student who was planning to bring a gun to school to settle a dispute.

A spokeswoman for the school district confirmed that an unsubstantiated rumor prompted the extra security, but would not elaborate.

The extra security did not appear to cause any interruptions in the school day.
