Update: On Monday, three Woodland High School students were arrested in connection to the threat. Two of the boys are 15 years old and the third is 16 years old. 

Woodland police believe the two 15-year-olds urged the 16-year-old boy to make the call to the school.

The younger boys face conspiracy charges and the older boy has been charged with making a false report of a crime and conspiracy.

WOODLAND — The Woodland community dealt with a tense situation Friday as police investigated reports of a shooting threat at Woodland High School.

Officers said two calls came in shortly after 10 a.m.

“The first phone call was just a, ‘What’s up,’ and some type of expletive, the next was, ‘We are locked down, there’s been a shooting.'”

Police searched the campus room by room.

By the mid-afternoon, police said no threat was found and the school lockdown was lifted.

As the campus search continued, students were bused to the nearby Christiansen Park, where parents could pick them up.

“I text her to see if they were on lockdown because usually, they don’t call if it’s just a drill,” parent Crystal Leffler said.

Police say two people were arrested during the lockdown, but for “being unruly” and no reason related to the reported threat.
