Piqua, OH- A high school was placed on lockdown after two students sent out a series of anonymous threats inspired by a popular TV show.
A 14-year-old and 15-year-old girl were arrested after making threats to the school in the style of those featured on the show Pretty Little Liars.
Police say the 15-year-old created a Snapchat account with the display name “A” and posted messages about exposing classmates’ secrets, which then led to rumors about a possible school shooting.
The 14-year-old followed that up by writing a violent threat on a bathroom mirror, which caused the school to evacuate on Friday.
“A” is a Pretty Little Liars character that sends ominous messages to classmates.
