(KGTV) – National City Police found Tuesday a student-to-student threat at a South Bay elementary school was not credible.

The alleged threat by a John A Otis Elementary student to another student was investigated, though not further details could be offered due to student privacy laws, according to National School Distict Superintendent Leighangela Brady.

"Students informed us of the alleged threat, and based on the information provided we took immediate action to investigate," Brady said. "This information came to our attention becase a student spoke up. I am grateful for the students' proactive efforts and self-confidence to speak up."

No further details regarding the incident were immediately released.
