The Everman Police Department is investigating a threat that led to a local high school being placed on lockdown.
According to Everman Police Chief C. W. Spencer, the Everman Joe C. Bean High School received a vague and unspecific threat in a phone call at 9 a.m. Monday. In response, the school was placed under lockdown immediately and law enforcement was called.
After investigation, authorities discovered that the call was made by a student. Officers took the student into custody and the threat was deemed as not credible since the student is a juvenile and there were no weapons involved.
Spencer said in a statement that an increase in police presence will be seen on their campus.
