Coeur d'Alene Police arrested a student near Lake City High School Thursday morning for making a verbal threat.
Principal Deanne Clifford told KHQ's Adam Meyer the student fled from school officials who were trying to detain him after he made verbal threats to another student.
"While the student made reference to a gun during the threat, at no point did the student have a gun on campus nor does he have any known access," Clifford said. "We have been working closely with the Coeur d'Alene Police Department. While this is an isolated incident and there is no ongoing threat, we will have additional police presence at school today and tomorrow to reassure students that they are safe."
Clifford added any time a student threatens violence, they follow the district's disciplinary procedures, which includes an immediate suspension and possible expulsion.
The student has not been identified and is in police custody, according to Clifford.
