ST. CHARLES, Mo. (AP) — Police are trying to pinpoint who authored a threatening note that forced the lockdown of a suburban St. Louis high school.

The note found Wednesday at St. Charles High School threatened that 18 students and teachers would be harmed, and that the school would be blown up.

Authorities say the note referenced deadly mass shootings at Colorado’s Columbine High School and Virginia Tech.

A sweep of the school uncovered no weapons or explosives, and no one was harmed.

There’s no immediate word on any charges or arrests.

Classes at the school were off Thursday and Friday for parent-teacher conferences.
