Buffalo Police say they have arrested a 17-year-old male in connection to threats made at Hutchinson Central Technical High School. The name of the student is not being released until family can be notified. He faces three counts of making a terroristic threat, which is a felony.

Police say that the search has concluded, but we've learned the FBI is currently assisting Buffalo Police in the investigation. 

Officers responded to the threat Friday morning. Posts have been circulating on social media detailing threats against the school, and have continued even after police announced someone was in custody.
