TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Students at Tucson High Magnet School can expect to see extra officers around campus Friday after a threat circulated on social media. 

Tucson police say someone threatened violence on Snapchat.

The threat was reported to officers on Thursday.

According to Sgt. Pete Dugan with the Tucson Police Department, police do not believe the threat to be credible.

As a precaution, however, there will be more security at the school throughout the day.

Officials with the Tucson Unified School District say the extra patrols are out of an "abundance of caution."
