Nashville high school reopening after threat

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) – A private high school in Nashville will reopen after police determined an online threat came from a student at another school who said it was a prank.

Metro Police spokesman Don Aaron told WSMV-TV ( authorities learned of the threat Thursday after someone reported it to the FBI tip line. The FBI called Metro Police and the police called school officials, who cancelled school and all activities.

On Friday, police learned the threat was made by a junior at another Catholic high school in the suburb of Hendersonville, Pope John Paul II.

A statement from the Hendersonville Police Department says the juvenile did not appear to have the intent or ability to follow through with the posted threat. He is charged in juvenile court with false reporting.
