A threat was found to be unsubstantiated at Milwaukee's Pulaski High School, according to Milwaukee Police. 

The school heard of the threat Wednesday night and called police to investigate. Thursday morning, two squad cars were outside of the high school during the investigation.

The school never appeared to be on lockdown as students went in and out of the school freely. One of the students is freshman Christopher Gonzalez. He was leaving early after he felt nervous about the threat. 

"I felt a little worried like, man, I'm going to be part of a school shooting," Gonzalez said. 

He called his mother from a classroom phone. The call was the first time she had heard anything about a potential threat. 

"They say this happened yesterday," Deborah Gonzalez said. "I'm wondering why we weren't notified yesterday. He definitely would not have come to school today."

MPS says they notified parents this morning once the threat was found to be not credible. 

"I want to know what's going on," Gonzalez said. "These are things we don't take lightly."

MPS says afternoon activities at Pulaski High School are on as scheduled.
