Law enforcement in McKee, Kentucky say that a 15-year-old female student has now been charged with making a terroristic threat to bring an explosive device to the Jackson County High School.
Both the Kentucky State Police and the Jackson County Sheriff's Office were contacted on Monday Morning by Jackson County High administrators about a female student who allegedly commented that she was bringing an explosive device to "blow up" the educational facility.
Kentucky State Police Post 7 spokesman Trooper Toney Allen said that the KSP along with Jackson County Sheriff's Office, and Jackson County High School staff cleared the halls and a complete search of the school premises was conducted by emergency responders.

There was no explosive devices found in the premises of Jackson County High School, located at 560 St-1001 in McKee, according to reports, but there remains an active criminal investigation into the threats made by the student.
The student's name isn't being released due to her age, but investigators say that she was located and interrogated about the incident prior to her arrest.
She has since been charged with Terroristic Threatening 1st Degree and transported into custody at the Breathitt County Juvenile Detention Center in Jackson, Kentucky.
She will be arraigned formally later this month.
