All clear given at Zachary High after rumored threat
ZACHARY - Law enforcement officials responded to Zachary High School this morning, after rumors surfaced yesterday about a possible threat to the campus.
Zachary Police Chief David McDavid says extra officers and East Baton Rouge sheriff's deputies went to the school this morning "out of an abundance of caution," but no problems were found.
McDavid says the department received complaints Tuesday about similar reports.
Those calls referenced threats made by a student from Central Private School. The teen was later arrested and charged with terrorizing for a post he made on Twitter, threatening the Silliman Institute in Clinton.
