Threat on Facebook Leads to Texas School Lockdown

LIVINGSTON, Texas --

A student is being questioned about a Facebook post that led to a high school lockdown.

Livingston Independent School District officials said the threat was made against Livingston High School. Officials said they were notified of the threat at 5:30 a.m.

The school allowed one person to enter the school at a time and each person was checked with a metal detector. It also increased the number of police officers on campus.

The school was searched and no weapons were found.

The lockdown was lifted at about 10:40 a.m.

"We're probably going to keep our local police officers on campus throughout the day, just to make sure that our students feel safe," said Gregg Faith, director of communication for Livingston ISD.

School district officials have not released the student's name. No charges have been filed.

"At this point, we're believing that the threat was not a serious threat," Faith said. "We don't believe that any of our students are in danger at this time."
