CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — Police in Wyoming say they've questioned a student who threatened to shoot people at a high school.

The Cheyenne Police Department hasn't identified the student. Department spokesman Kevin Malatesta says the case is still being investigated and charges could be filed.

The student wrote anonymously on the social media website Snapchat on Wednesday, "Don't come to school tomorrow. I'm serious."

The student wrote he or she had been trained to shoot since 3 years of age and that South High School students would "pay" if they went to school Thursday.

The Wyoming Tribune Eagle reports the student was kept home from school Thursday.

Police stationed additional officers at the high school but school officials say several students chose to stay home.

Woman pleads guilty to lesser charge in Hastings slaying

HASTINGS, Neb. (AP) — A woman accused of being an accessory to the 2017 slaying of a Hastings man has pleaded guilty to a lesser charge.

Adams County Court records say 23-year-old Katherine Creigh entered the plea Thursday to misdemeanor obstruction of government operations. She'd been charged as an accessory in the slaying of Jose Hansen. Prosecutors say Hansen was killed during a robbery attempt by Daniel Harden and Deante Mullen.

She testified against Daniel Harden during his trial. He was charged with first-degree murder, a weapons count and conspiracy to commit robbery. But jurors convicted himMonday only of the robbery charge.

Creigh is scheduled to be sentenced Jan. 8.

Mullen's next court hearing is scheduled for Tuesday.
