CALHOUN, GA (CBS46) -

A student at Calhoun High School will face discipline after allegedly posting a threatening photo to Snapchat.

The student posted a photo of a gun next to a picture of Columbine High School, site of the infamous school shooting in 1999. A caption also says "Can't wait for lunch."

School officials took immediate action and the student will face appropriate consequences.

The school issued this statement on their Facebook page regarding the matter:
