Teen Arrested In Connection With Millard South Threats

 (WOWT) -- Omaha Police have arrested a 17-year-old male for two counts of Terroristic Threats in connection with an incident on Tuesday involving Millard South High School.

The Omaha Police Department sent officers to Millard South High School Tuesday after a reported threat. OPD called the threat unsubstantiated but in an abundance of caution, they sent multiple officers to the school for extra security.

Millard spokesperson Rebecca Kleeman said parents called 911 shortly before dismissal on Tuesday saying there was a threat made over text last week. Kleeman told 6 News a non-student was texting students at Millard South threatening a fight.

The response by local law enforcement comes less than a week after 17 people were fatally shot at a Florida high school.

OPD announced the arrest of the teen in the Millard South incident on Wednesday morning.
