Pike sheriff discusses reaction to school threats

BUCKLEY’S CREEK, Ky. — The Pike County Sheriff’s Office received a call around 7:20 Friday morning saying there had been a possible threat at Pike County Central High School. According to police, the caller stated someone was supposedly going to bring a gun to school. Upon arrival, police searched and questioned the student in question. The juvenile denied making a threat and police couldn’t find any evidence of the alleged threat. As a precautionary measure, deputies stayed at the school until school officially started. Deputies then came back and stayed during the school’s lunch period. Pike County Sheriff Rodney Scott says he thinks the incident was just a misunderstanding or a rumor. However, he says he and his deputies consider it to be serious and will not handle those types of situations lightly.
