Criminal charges will not be filed against a student after allegedly saying a math symbol looked like a gun.



On Tuesday afternoon, Allen Parish Sheriff's Office deputies investigated an allegation of terrorist threats at Oberlin High School, according to the department's Facebook page.

The investigation revealed that a student was completing a math problem and drew the sign for square root.
Deputies say another student made a comment that the symbol looked like a gun and several other students made similar comments. 

According to investigators, the comment made by the student in question "could" sound like a threat when taken out of context.

Not surprising in Allen Parish.
