PICKERINGTON, Ohio — A 14-year-old suspect has been arrested in connection to a threat that prompted Pickerington North High School and Lakeview Junior High to go into a lockdown for two hours on Tuesday.

Fairfield County Sheriff Alex Lape said the suspect made a threat against Lakeview Junior High on social media.

The suspect was identified and arrested around 6 p.m. in another part of Fairfield County, Lape said.

Briggs said no one came on the school's property. The district canceled all evening events.

Classes are expected to resume on Wednesday.
