Snap Chat contacted the local FBI office who contacted the sheriff's office.

The account was traced back to a juvenile female in Marion Township who was identified as a student at Willow Creek Middle School.

Investigators with the sheriff's office and Rochester police met with the student and determined the gun used in the picture was a toy and that there was no threat to any students or staff at the school. 

Law enforcement noted that nobody who viewed the photo on Snap Chat contacted law enforcement to report the incident as a threat.

An investigation is on-going.
