SEATTLE (AP) - Seattle police say a threatening text message that set off a brief lockdown at the Seattle Pacific University campus has led to a woman’s arrest.

Detective Drew Fowler says an SPU student received the message from a former girlfriend, who reportedly said she would kill him and his friends. The lockdown was lifted once authorities confirmed the woman was in Skagit County, north of Seattle, and posed no threat to the school.

Fowler says the woman had claimed to be on the Seattle campus Friday afternoon.

Skagit County deputies arrested the woman at a home outside Burlington. Fowler said deputies planned to transfer her to Seattle police before she is booked into the King County Jail in Seattle for investigation of harassment.

Burlington is about 60 miles north of Seattle.

On June 5, a gunman killed one student and wounded two others on the SPU campus.
