An alleged gun threat at a high school in the northwest suburbs prompted school officials to cancel some student activities.

Barrington Unit District 220 officials canceled Saturday night's school dance and girls' basketball game.

The events were canceled after some students reported hearing others discussing bringing a gun to the dance.

A similar threat was made back in 2008 before the school's prom.

Police are investigating Saturday night's threat.
