Teen arrested after false gun threat puts Davis schools on lockdown
A 13-year-old boy was arrested after police tied him to a Tuesday afternoon threat that placed three Davis County schools and their surrounding neighborhoods on lockdown.
Clearfield police Sgt. Kyle Jeffries said a youth called 911 from a phone inside North Davis Junior High and reported a shooter was at the school.
As a precaution, the school was placed on lockdown and officers converged on the campus, although it was later determined that there was no credible threat.
Jeffries said in a media release that no firearm was found after police searched the school. Police did find one person who witnessed the call and led them to the suspect.
Police arrested a 13-year-old on suspicion of terroristic threats, a third-degree felony. Police do not believe there were any other suspects in the case.
