A Steele High School student is wanted in connection with a threat about a possible gunman on campus.

Police said a group of students in the cafeteria Tuesday were discussing their thoughts about what may happen on Friday, Dec. 21, 2012, also known as the end of the Mayan calendar.

Another student joined the group and made statements regarding a possible gunman that would come into the school and shoot students while they waited in line for lunch, according to police.

Police identified the student who made the statement as 16-year-old Denis Fournier and is currently reported as a runaway.

Although police say the threat was generic in nature, Schertz-Cibolo University City ISD administration and Cibolo police said they take all threats seriously and are taking necessary action to ensure students and faculty are safe on campus.

Cibolo police are asking anyone with information about Fournier's whereabouts to contact the Cibolo Police Department at 210-659-1999 or through their dispatch center at 210-619-1200.
