    A school district in Vermont will be closed on Tuesday after authorities say a student made a verbal threat.

    Police in Randolph said a parent notified them at about 11 p.m. Monday after their child said another student said they were going to "shoot up the school tomorrow."

    Investigators arranged to speak with the parent and student at the police station and determined that the statement was made during an altercation between two middle school students.

    Police notified Randolph Superintendent Layne Millington and other school staff of the potential threat.
