The Brownsboro High School was placed on lockdown this morning following threats made against a student.

At 8:55 a.m., school administrators decided to implement their Shelter-In-Place plan after learning about a threat against one of their students.

Brownsboro Superintendent Dr. Chris Moran believes the school handled the situation well.

“Our school district Chief of Police and campus administration did an exceptional job of using common sense to preserve the integrity of the school day, while at the same time, responding quickly and effectively to the threat,” said Moran.

The Brownsboro Police Department, Henderson County Sheriff, and BISD Police force worked together to protect the campus and arrested the suspect in Smith County.

“Parents, students, and staff in Brownsboro ISD, which includes the City of Chandler, should feel confident to know that school safety and the safety of our students is the most important thing,” Moran added.

The school removed the lockdown orders shortly before 10 a.m., one hour after the threat was brought to the attention of administrators.

The suspect was charged with terroristic threat, a 3rd degree felony and taken to Henderson County Jail where he is being held on $10,000 dollars bond. Their name has not been released.
