After the mass shooting in Parkland, Florida, last month, two Wasatch County students threatened gun violence on Snapchat videos. Local police immediately responded, thanks to alerts from other students.  Thursday night the Wasatch board of education held a special public meeting to review school security procedures.  Carolyn Murray reports.

Roughly 200 Wasatch County residents attended a school board meeting Thursday night to talk about school security, active shooter scenarios, and whether staff might use concealed weapons to deter violence.  Many in attendance expressed gratitude and support for the way the School District is addressing the threats recently made by two students threatening gun violence.   Twenty five to 30 people asked specific questions about current and future security measures.
