Posted: Updated:

UPDATE: The Smith County Sheriff's Department confirmed Tuesday that they arrested 17-year-old Ken Warren Monday at the request of Brownsboro investigators. Warren was held at the Smith County Jail until they could pick him up. Sheriff Ray Nutt said Warren was being held in the Henderson County Jail as of Tuesday afternoon.

BROWNSBORO (KYTX) - Brownsboro High School implemented its Shelter-In-Place response plan Monday at 8:55 a.m. as a result of a threat made against one of its students.

Information was given to school administrators Monday reporting a Smith County resident had made threats against a high school student, specific and credible enough that school officials responded with Shelter-In-Place.

The response was taken to ensure the protection of the campus and specifically the individual student, officials said.

"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 BISD superintendent Dr. Chris Moran.

The Brownsboro Police Department, Henderson County Sheriff, and BISD Police force coordinated an effort to protect the campus efficiently and the suspect was arrested in Smith County shortly after the threat was reported. Moran added,

The Shelter-In-Place ended at 9:55 a.m., an hour after the information was reported, and students at Brownsboro High School did not miss any instructional time. The suspect was charged with Terroristic Threat, a 3rd degree felony and transported to Henderson County Jail where he is being held on $10,000 dollars bond.

"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 said.
