Five high school students in Canton, Pennsylvania, have been arrested after allegedly threatening violence against their school district.
School officials closed the district's junior-senior high school and elementary school early on Tuesday, the day the first two were arrested. Classes were canceled for the rest of the week.
The 15- and 16-year-old students are charged with making terroristic threats and creating a risk of catastrophe. The police chief says the suspects call themselves the "Drive-By Kings."
The district's superintendent says students tipped off administrators about the threats last week. State police found no weapons during a sweep of the building.
The school board has decided to have two armed uniformed police officers on duty when school resumes next week. It also approved a new parent notification system.
A proposal to look at buying metal detectors was tabled.
