Earlier today, police removed a 7th-grade male student from the Pond Road Middle School grounds shortly before the start of class and taken for questioning by authorities.
Police said a video posted of what appeared to be a handgun was discovered overnight on Snapchat.
Officers identified, then interviewed the student who was accompanied by his mother.
At this time, police believe a BB gun was displayed in the eight-second video, which also features other children laughing in the background.
"We take every threat seriously," RPD Chief Chris Nitti said. "I am very pleased with the coordination between not only our department and school district officials but also the parent who helped bring this matter to our attention."
There is no imminent threat at Pond Road or any of Robbinsville's three schools at this time, and classes are on a regular operating schedule.
