Three students at Theodore Roosevelt High School were arrested Tuesday after threats were made against the school and fake toy guns were discovered on campus.

According to a KSAT report, three freshmen — two 15-year-old girls and a 14-year-old boy — were charged with making a terroristic threat. The charges come after the North East ISD school was placed on lockdown on Tuesday for about two hours after a student reported seeing another student walking down the hallway with a gun.

District police were then contacted and administrators carried out lockdown procedures. Following a search, authorities found two plastic guns and confirmed that there was not an active shooter on campus.

The lockdown came after a threat was reportedly made against the school on Monday, KSAT reports. Principal Bryan Norwood sent a letter out Monday in response, writing that the threat was made in "a phone call to a student that threatens violence on campus." Although the call came from a blocked number, the Express-News reports that law enforcement didn't believe the threat to be credible.

Authorities are not sure at this time whether Monday's threat and Tuesday's discovery are related, but will continue to investigate to determine who is responsible for the phone call.
