Westwood Middle School was put on lockdown Wednesday afternoon after students discovered a note that “threatened the building.”
Two students took the note, which was discovered in the gymnasium bleachers, to Principal Dana Morris, according to Manchester City Schools Director of Instruction Joey Vaughn.
Manchester Police Department went to the school and the students were put on lockdown and searched the building.
Manchester Police Department Assistant Chief Adam Floied told the Manchester Times that the investigation was ongoing and people were being questioned.
Investigator Sturat Colwell informed WMSR News late Wednesday afternoon that an arrest has been made in the hoax at Westwood Middle School. A juvenile was charged with filing a false report.
Vaughn said a note was prepared to send home with students from Morris Wednesday afternoon.
