School district: Student in police custody after threats


A student is in police custody after making threats, officials with Hamilton City Schools wrote on their Facebook page.

"Student safety is a top priority for the Hamilton City School District," reads the Tuesday night posting. "Please be aware that we fully investigated reports of threats concerning Hamilton High School and worked along side the Hamilton Police Department.

"The student who issued the threats has received school discipline, and is now under police custody, " it continues. "As a precaution, additional police will be at Hamilton High School tomorrow."

The school posted a follow-up Wednesday morning stating officials have not found any other viable threats. 

FOX19 NOW is seeking more information and comment from a school district spokeswoman and Hamilton police.
