BREMERTON, Wash. -- The Bremerton School District said Thursday it was investigating the report of possible violence.  A parent called the district saying their student overheard some other students talking about the possible violence.

Bremerton police, resource officers and administrators were all at Bremerton High School Thursday morning to make sure kids were safe.

Police said officers reviewed security video from Wednesday to identify those who may be involved and spoke directly with those students.

They said there is no evidence to indicate that the threats are substantiated or credible.

“The school district and department have worked together as a team, as we always do in these types of incidents,” said Bremerton Police Chief Steve Strachan. “We have been all over this from the first report, and the district is balancing our aggressive follow-up and investigation with an abundance of caution and good communication with parents and students."

Administrators said the district has notified parents and students.

Authorities said there would be an increased police presence at the school.
