2 detained following lockdowns at Denton high schools; police say 'no credible threat'

Two other schools were placed on soft lockdown.

DENTON, Texas — Two people were detained following lockdowns Wednesday at multiple Denton ISD schools.

All lockdowns have since been lifted after "no credible threat or weapons were found," the police department tweeted. Investigators believe the threats were a hoax, and police said they are interviewing the detained individual.

One person was detained at Denton High School and another was detained at Ryan High School.

At around 10 a.m., Denton police placed multiple schools under lockdown as officers investigated "unsubstantiated threats" at Denton High School and Ryan High School, police said. There were large police presences at both campuses out of an abundance of caution.

Calhoun Middle School and Newton Rayzor Elementary were also briefly followed lockout procedures, but later resumed normal operations. The lockdown was also lifted at Guyer High School.

Searches inside the buildings are ongoing, police said at about 12 p.m.
