RED BUD, Ill. (AP) - Police in southern Illinois’ Red Bud say they have concluded that a sixth-grade girl’s list of schoolmates she wanted to kill posed no actual threat.

The Belleville News-Democrat reports that the unidentified girl’s so-called “kill list” involving 11 students was discovered Friday.

Police investigated and have told parents there’s nothing to fear.

The newspaper says that police and school administrators say the girl was interviewed by a psychologist and was found to have no intentions of following through on doing any harm to schoolmates.

Police say they don’t expect to pursue any charges, though it’s unclear if the school plans any disciplinary action.

Red Bud is about 40 miles southeast of St. Louis.
