SAN DIEGO (KGTV) - Additional security will be present at Mission Bay High School this week after a social media threat was reported to authorities, principal Ernest Remillard said Monday.

Remillard said a physical incident took place last Thursday between two MBHS students.

Over the weekend one of the students involved made threats on social media to bring weapons to the school, the principal said.

Police investigated the situation and detained a student, whose identity was not released. School Police deemed the potential threat non-credible, according to Remillard.

In a statement to MBHS families, Remillard said in part:

"I believe the Mission Bay campus is a safe place for student learning. Thank you to all of the families who have reached out sharing your concern. I appreciate the Mission Bay community and the determination to keep our campus safe for all students."
