Juvenile Charged With Making Threats That Led To School Lockdowns

A juvenile has been charged after three Christian County schools were put on lockdown due to a threat made to a student Monday afternoon.

Hopkinsville Police say they received a report of a juvenile that sent a message to a student at school claiming someone was coming with a gun for them. Christian County Public Schools Communications Director John Rittenhouse said Gateway Academy administration was made aware of the threat made on social media by a non-district individual to the student.

Christian County Middle School, Christian County High School, and both campuses of Gateway Academy were locked down temporarily due to the threat.

The juvenile has been charged with third-degree terroristic threatening.
