Threat Prompts Lockdown at Bradford Schools

School security measure was in place from 8 a.m. to noon on Friday.
BRADFORD, AR - A threat forced a four-hour lockdown at Bradford Schools (White County) today.

The lockdown was in effect from 8 a.m. to noon while the threat was investigated.

Bradford Police Chief Claude Money says a high school student called police Thursday afternoon after overhearing a 10th grade boy say he would shoot everyone who wore red.

Chief Money called in the Arkansas State Police and White County Sheriff's Office to search every student as they entered the building today.

The search ended around noon and parents were notified by phone around 1:30.

Police say the suspect told officers he was only joking when he made the statement. He's now facing a felony terroristic threatening charge.
