The high school student pictured holding a gun and a sign that said 'We hang n****** for free' in a vile Snapchat photo will not face criminal charges.
Police confirmed they are not investigating the teenage girl from South Carolina after the racist image posted to social media went viral.
But the unidentified Hillcrest High School student, wearing a pink t-shirt and bandanna, could still yet face expulsion over the sickening image.
The picture, posted to Facebook, has since been shared thousands of times and appears to show the young girl with a rifle in her left hand and the racist poster in her right.
A spokesperson for Greenville County Schools told DailyMail.com the girl is suspended and recommended for expulsion. They added: 'The expulsion hearing has not yet taken place.'
The police were called after the image was flagged, Yahoo Lifestyle reports.
