"We received other 'screen shots' of social media posts and text messages all of a similar nature," said Tracey Shields, a police spokesperson.
Shields added that the threat was found to be without merit.
"We worked jointly with NISD staff and parents of the students involved to ensure there was no danger to students or faculty at the Byron Nelson High School campus," said Shields.
Shields said that no arrests have been made.
Principal Ron Myers posted a letter on the school's website stating that the investigation was underway.
"Like you, we value the safety of all of our students and are thankful for the partnership that we have with our Bobcat Community," Myers said in the statement.
