HENDERSONVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – A teenager was taken into custody after a threat was called into Beech High School Wednesday morning.
Multiple agencies responded to the school to assist with the investigation. Students and faculty were told to shelter in place and a lockdown was enforced until the threat about a shooting was deemed not credible.
School spokesman Jeremy Johnson told News 2 no one was ever inside Beech High School at any time during the lockdown and no students were injured.
Two other schools, Beech Elementary and TW Hunter Middle School, were also placed on lockdown as a precaution.
Parents were notified of the situation. Some who spoke to News 2 called the incident “absolutely terrifying.”
“It was reassuring that the principal spoke to me individually – to the parents individually, but when your child’s life is in someone else’s hands, you want as much information as possible,” parent Renee Hunter told News 2.
Students resumed their normal schedule for the remainder of Wednesday. Parents can pick up their children from the school if they choose to do so.
Police have not released the juvenile’s identity or said if they will face charges.
