MURFREESBORO, Tenn. (WKRN) – A student is now in custody after a bomb threat was called into Oakland High School in Murfreesboro Friday morning.
According to schools spokesman James Evans, the student is now charged with making a false report.
School officials made the decision to cancel class Friday after the threat was received.
“We have no choice but to close the school instead of having students held outside for possibly several hours,” Evans said earlier in the day.
The Rutherford County Sheriff’s Office responded to the scene and after searching the school determined the threat was not credible.
Sheriff Mike Fitzhugh said the bomb threat has nothing to do with the planned rally this weekend on the Murfreesboro square.
Classes will resume on Monday morning as normal.
