"We encourage anyone who might know of a potential threat to report that to us," Gonzalez said.
Carranza stressed the importance for all community members to be brave and speak up if they see anything that strikes them as odd or raises red flags.
"The answer is not metal detectors, it's not razor wire in our schools," he added.
