Huntington student charged with making threats

HUNTINGTON — Huntington police say a high school student has been charged with making a terroristic threat.

Police Capt. Hank Dial says the female student is accused of writing a threat on a bathroom wall Thursday at Huntington High School. Dial says the writing threatened a shooting but didn’t have a specified target. Dial says the threat was “not credible.”

The Herald-Dispatch reports the name of the freshman student wasn’t released.

Police patrolled the hallways while students remained in their sixth-period classrooms for the rest of the day before being released on a regular schedule.  Some parents drove to school early to pick up their children.

Cabell County schools spokesman Jedd Flowers says phone calls notified parents of the situation and traffic at the school was monitored.
