KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) _ Kansas City, Missouri, police say four people are in custody after one of them allegedly threatened a student with a handgun during a confrontation broadcast live on Facebook.

Police said there’s no evidence the incident just after 2 p.m. Tuesday near the freshman center building in the Hickman Mills school district took place on school grounds.

There were no injuries.
