MIDDLETOWN, OH (FOX19) – -

A 15-year-old Middletown High School student was arrested Monday and faces a felony charge of inducing panic, school officials announced Tuesday.

"A note written by the male student containing information regarding a possible death threat for Thursday at Middletown High School was turned in to the Middletown High School Resource Officer," district officials wrote. 

Police immediately arrested the student and searched the property. The student appeared to be working alone and no weapons were found in the school, police officials report.

“Through a very thorough investigation, our administrators and school resource officer have found no reason to believe there is any continuing threat,” read a release from the school district.

Middletown High will have heightened security when students return to school “in order to allay any fears.”

Earlier Tuesday, the chief discussed the incident on the police department's Facebook page.

"I wanted to take a minute and address a few things. Throughout the night I was bombarded with texts, Facebook messages and phone calls about two incidents," Muterspaw wrote.

"The first was a robbery at a Family Dollar here in town. The second was in reference to an incident at Middletown High School where a student wrote a note full of racial slurs and included a threat.

"These incidents were shared a thousand times on Facebook. Both incidents are high priority incidents that we take very seriously. Both cases are being investigated fully and in the latter case, an arrest was made immediately and the student was taken out of the school."
