The kids were accused of encouraging, sharing, or commenting on school violence through text message or social media, according to a Monday statement by Mark Watkins, the chief of Utah’s Roosevelt Police Department.

Some of the purported chatter online included students suggesting there would be a “bring your gun to school day,” although no guns were brought to school and it was determined there was no threat, the police statement said.

Police alleged that the charged students made threats about schools in the Duchesne School District, according to the ABC-affiliated Utah news outlet ABC 4.

A purported TikTok trend involving people making videos threatening nationwide school shootings sparked mass panic last week. A TikTok spokesperson told Insider the company found no evidence of such content on the platform and Insider was unable to identify any TikToks with school threats on Friday.

Still, as a result of rumors over the trend, schools in at least 10 states published statements warning community members about the situation and multiple schools closed on Friday.
