Police say a North Chicago High School student received a video of a subject holding a gun that had a caption indicating a shooting would happen on Friday.
Officials with the North Chicago Community High School provided information to the North Chicago Police Department on Thursday in regards to a threat made by social media.
Police said the Snapchat video was received by a student of the high school.
The video was captioned “Shooting up nogo on June 3rd.”
In the video, a subject can be seen holding a gun and pointing it directly at the camera.
The North Chicago Police Department said they are looking to identify the subject in the video.
In a message to parents and staff Thursday afternoon, District 187 officials said they continue working with the police department regarding the school threat.

All schools in District 187 are planned to remain open for classes on Friday. “We will let you know as soon as possible if anything changes,” the district said.
