CHILTON COUNTY, AL (WBRC) -

Only 28 students out of a student body of 720 showed up today after threats were made to the school over social media this weekend. 

Chilton County authorities increased security at Isabella High School and interviewed people Sunday about the threats made on Snapchat, according to a video posted to the Chilton County Sheriff's Office's Facebook page. 

Any student not in attendance Monday, Nov. 6 will be excused, according to the school. 

The threats were made by a student and stemmed from an altercation at the school that happened last Thursday. 

There is no "credible evidence to substantiates the allegation," Sheriff John Shearon said in the video. 

It is an isolated event, according to Shearon. 

The incident is still under investigation.
