UPDATE, 11:30 a.m.: Carencro Police Chief David Anderson has clarified that there was no lockdown, but the search of the school has resulted in two arrests.
Both are students at the school, and are juveniles, Anderson said. One was arrested for writing a threat on a bathroom wall, and the other was the result of a threat sent via email. Both occurred earlier this week.
Anderson said 10 officers conducted searches of Carencro High students as they exited their school buses and personal vehicles this morning.
The two juveniles have been charged with terrorizing, Anderson said.
ORIGINAL: CARENCRO, La. (KLFY) — Carencro High School responded to a threat of violence by one of its students with a show of force by law enforcement.
The school was briefly placed on lockdown as a preventative measure this morning. The lockdown has since been lifted, authorities said.
Several units from the Carencro Police Department arrived and placed the school under lockdown after a student threatened earlier this week to shoot up the school today.
After securing and searching the school no weapons or other threats were found, and no arrests were made as a result of the threat, police said.
