Juvenile arrested for bomb threat at Martha Layne Collins H.S.

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A juvenile has been arrested for allegedly calling in a bomb threat at Martha Layne Collins High School in Shelbyville, Ky., on Monday.

Kerry Whitehouse, the assistant superintendent, will not identify the suspect, or say whether or not the juvenile is a student.

On Monday afternoon, the school was evacuated after someone called the front office to make a bomb threat. Shelby County Sheriff's deputies responded and a Louisville Metro Police bomb-sniffing dog was brought in.

Students were taken to the football field, and eventually sent home, as it took roughly two hours to clear the building. No explosive device was ever found.

Maj. Jason Rice says a juvenile was arrested and charged with terroristic threatening.
