Tonight there’s a lot of relief among students, parents faculty and staff at Terre Haute North High School.

It follows a day of fear and uncertainty. It began with a bomb threat and a sizeable law enforcement response.

The latest from Terre Haute police is that no one is in custody for this bomb threat and at this time there are still no suspects. We learned from Terre Haute police roughly an hour ago at a press conference that the threat was made to the police department before 11 this morning that a man had an AR-15 rifle and a bomb and was going to shoot up the school if he wasn’t paid a ransom.

This is newly released information, parents were not told about this detail as they were on school property. All students are safe from the school today… No weapons were found in the school.

Students were released after an Indiana State Police bomb dog inspected the school. Police Chief John Plasse thanked parents for an hour of cooperation during this stressful time.

“If he wasn’t delivered a ransom in 10 minutes he would start shooting Terre haute High school students before I got there we got other info that school contacted police he would start shooting… If we took students out he would shoot as we took them out of building,” Chief Plasse said.

Chief Plasse also said in his press conference today that police received a threat on Snapchat that they followed up with some students to get to the bottom of that situation. The investigation is on going anyone with info is asked to contact Terre Haute police.
