The Lafayette Police Department says that several schools in North Lafayette were placed on lockdown after threats were reportedly made.

The department says there was never any immediate danger to students or faculty but that the lockdowns were initiated as a precaution as police investigated the credibility of the threats. Those threats have since been deemed non-credible.

The lockdowns were lifted.

No Lafayette Parish Public Schools were a part of the lockdown.

The department did not specify which schools were on lockdown but several viewers have reported that Willow Charter Academy was one of the schools on lockdown
