EUCLID, OH (WOIO) -

The Euclid Police Department and Euclid City Schools announced that one student is in custody in connection with a threat against their schools earlier this week.

Officials held a joint news conference Thursday regarding Sunday's threat to the district.

According to police, the student is accused of posting the violent message, which threatened students at Lutheran East and the Euclid School District, on Instagram.

It read: "At 10:00, all Euclid schools and LEHS we'll get shot up." Lutheran East principal Chris Steinmann chose to cancel classes the following day at his school while officials in the Euclid district did not. 

Police do not believe any other students were involved.
