Reports of a shooting and that a shooter was in custody were circulated from a Facebook live done by a student.

The Sheriff's Office says that the information shared in that Facebook Live is false.

"All students are safe and the investigation continues," the sheriff's office said.

Students who were on the bus were interviewed about the report.
