A Niverville Collegiate student who posted an image of a gun on Instagram, along with a threatening message towards his school, will not face criminal charges for his actions.

A RCMP spokesperson told The Carillon that no charges will be laid in the matter and the investigation has been closed.

The student's online post sparked alarm and frustration last Wednesday, as parents worried about the safety of their children at the school.

Hanover School Division has said it will be updating its communications procedures to ensure parents receive more timely information in the future, should a similar incident occur.

Superintendent Randy Dueck told parents at a meeting last Thursday that no decision would be made on whether the youth will return to the school until after a risk assessment is completed and HSD trustees review the matter.
