Investigators identified a person on interest, then arrested a juvenile student on a Terrorizing charge. According to LA RS 14:40.1, "Terrorizing is the intentional communication of information that the commission of a crime of violence is imminent or in progress or that a circumstance dangerous to human life exists or is about to exist, with the intent of causing members of the general public to be in sustained fear for their safety; or causing evacuation of a building, a public structure, or a facility of transportation; or causing other serious disruption to the general public." Those found guilty of Terrorizing face a prison sentence of up to 15 years and/or fines up to $15,000. Sheriff Gibson had this message for everyone:

Our deputies have trained for threats, especially within our school systems. Though this threat was deemed to be a non-active incident, we will always treat threats as real until the investigation deems otherwise.
