REARDAN-EDWALL, Wash. - UPDATE: The lockdown has been lifted. There were no weapons found in the school.
Reardan-Edwall School District Superintendent said Thursday morning that the district was dealing with an emergency situation where a Reardan High School student made an online threat.
Superintendent Marcus Morgan didn't go into detail, but said threats like this are quite typical following incidents like the Freeman High School shooting. He said students look to gain attention with copy-cat threats.
The student did not bring a weapon to school, but Morgan said he is in custody. Police are searching the student's locker to make sure he had no weapons at school.
Morgan added that there is no threat and the school was placed in lock-down as a precaution, but the lock-down will soon be lifted.
