Shortly before noon on Wednesday, the Pulaski County Sheriff's Department responded to the Laquey High School in reference to a student making deadly threats. According to school officials, a juvenile student in their facility was making threats of bodily injury to several students by use of a firearm, both verbally and via electronic communications.

Due to the evidence at hand, the school's Student Resource Officer (SRO) and administrators felt this was an urgent situation and responded accordingly.

Upon arrival of sheriff deputies, the student was taken into custody and turned over to a Pulaski County juvenile officer. There were no weapons located on school grounds and no reported injuries.

Due to the juvenile student's age, no other information about this subject can be released. The incident is currently under investigation. Laquey school officials can be commended for their efforts to immediately resolve the situation and render their school safe
