HILTON, N.Y. News10NBC is learning more information about Friday’s hoax threat in Hilton.

The school superintendent confirms the threat originated in Florida. A Snapchat post threatening to shoot up a school was being shared among Hilton students and families. It was also shared in New Mexico, Pennsylvania, Utah, Minnesota, Arkansas, and across the nation.

The superintendent says a student in Florida’s Broward County public school has been charged with multiple felonies after she sent the threat using another student’s name and computer access. No credible threat was found.
