HENDERSONVILLE (WSPA) – Three people are in custody and a western North Carolina high school is off lockdown after deputies say a bomb threat was made on social media.

North Henderson High School received the bomb threat according to the Henderson County Sheriff’s Office. Deputies are on the scene Wednesday morning and we’re told no students or staff are in danger.

17-year-old Seth Corn, 17-year-old Kain Brown, and 17-year-old Anselmo Castillo were arrested and charged with Making a False Report Concerning Mass Violence on Educational Property.

Henderson County Public Schools contacted the sheriff’s office after the bomb threat was received from social media.

North Henderson High School was on what’s called a “soft lockdown” as a precaution until deputies complete a sweep of the campus and finish the investigation.

That sweep is done and they didn’t find any suspicious devices. The lockdown was lifted around 12:15pm.
