Multiple arrests have been made within the past couple of hours in reference to the threats made at Lawrence County High School on Wednesday, Feb. 9, 2022.

“When dealing with juveniles, all information including their identity is highly confidential. All suspects are presumed innocent until proven guilty,” Lawrence County Sheriff Ryan Everett said at approximately 3:45 p.m. Friday.

“I would like to thank the teachers and other staff at Lawrence County High School for being patient during the course of this lengthy investigation. I know at times, it seemed like it would remain an unsolved mystery and y’all’s nerves were already on edge.”
