BELCOURT, N.D. (AP) - Authorities have detained suspects in unrelated threat incidents that prompted the school in Belcourt to go on lockdown two days in a row.

WDAZ-TV reports that the school was locked down Tuesday due to a gun threat on social media. On Wednesday, a person created a fake Facebook account to post threatening messages. Turtle Mountain Chippewa leaders said the incidents weren’t related.

Names of the suspects haven’t been released. The school district told KMOT-TV that neither threat involved a student from the school.
