When asked about threats the school previously addressed and a previous incident involving a severed deer head on campus, the sheriff's office said Tuesday's shooting was unrelated.
Bouchard also repeatedly stressed his office was not aware of any credible threats of violence before the shooting.
He said, "there is all kinds of stuff on social media, please don't believe everything you hear on social media.
"We're also hearing that there were rumors that someone had said something or knew something. None of that came to us until today. So if there is information, that is the kind of thing we need to know and get looped in to," he added.
The biggest thing anyone can do to stop actions like this, the sheriff said, is to speak up.
"If you hear or see something, you have got to say something. Whether it's OK2Say, calling us directly or anonymously, we need to know what you see and hear.
