COLLINSVILLE, IL (KTVI) – Extra police will be on hand Friday morning at Collinsville High School. This comes after the school learned a student was going to bring a gun to school last week.

The district called police and after searching two homes associated with the student there was no credible threat.  Thursday a parent posted on social media concerns over a shooting at the school Friday. Police talked with the parent and have determined it was in reaction to last week’s incident.

So, extra police will be there as a precaution.
