PUYALLUP, Wash. (AP) - Police say threats prompted the closure of two Puyallup schools and resulted in the arrest of a 16-year-old female student.

The News Tribune reports (https://bit.ly/2cQ3RPr ) that the Puyallup School District closed Emerald Ridge High School and Glacier View Junior High Tuesday after police became aware of a threat of violence against the high school.

Glacier View was closed because of its proximity to Emerald Ridge.

Puyallup police say the teen arrested is a student at Emerald Ridge and that she’s been booked for felony harassment and threats. No other suspects are being sought.

Police say the incident is not linked to terrorism and they don’t expect further safety concerns.

Updates about when classes will resume will be posted on the district’s website.
