PIERRE PART, La. (BRPROUD) — An elementary school in Assumption Parish went into lockdown Wednesday morning following the discovery of a written threat in the bathroom.
Deputies, detectives, and school personnel searched for any sign of a possible threat and had “every individual” go through a metal detector, according to the Assumption Parish Sheriff’s Office. No credible threat was found by authorities and Pierre Part Elementary School resumed normal operations.
The Sheriff’s Office later said that a complaint was filed against a 14-year-old male connected to the threatening note.
The juvenile was temporarily taken into custody on a Terrorism charge and released to his parents, according to a Thursday, December 1 notice from the Sheriff’s Office.
Sheriff Leland Falcon added, “After a thorough search of the school, no weapons were found. There were no acts in furtherance of the threat and the school is back to its normal operating procedures.”
