New photo features threat at West High School
SALT LAKE CITY — A Snapchat photo has surfaced reportedly from West High School showing someone holding a gun with the words, “Inda Wild West,” written across the screen. West High School was put on lockdown around 10:50 a.m. Monday and police detained two students.
It has not been released as to what that threat was or why the students have been detained.
Snapchat uses geofences — virtual geographic boundaries, made by GPS or RFID technology, that allow the software to “know” when a mobile device enters or leaves a particular area — to determine the location of photos taken, which you can then put on your screen, as this photo shows.
This means that the photo shown was taken in the school or on school grounds as the location listed is informed by GPS.
Students are safe within the school and police are investigating the incident. The lockdown order was lifted around 2 p.m. Monday.
