FINDLAY, Ohio (AP) — Police in Ohio are investigating after a photo posted on social media showed a pair of smiling 14-year-old girls holding plastic guns and a sign that reads "I hate everyone, you hate everyone. Let's shoot up the school at homecoming."

The Courier in Findlay reports (http://bit.ly/2cNC2Uh ) police were called to Findlay High School Tuesday morning for the post.

District officials say there was no safety threat and the school was not placed on a lockdown.

Police Lt. Robert Ring says the sign was apparently a prank. He says one girl had a break up and the other had "issues as well." He says they decided to ask each other to the school's homecoming dance.
