Authorities check out school threats

Authorities have looked into multiple threats made against schools in Roane County. The threats come days after a gunman killed 17 people at a high school in Florida.

“We’re trying to talk through these issues with the school system and the sheriff’s department to address them,” District Attorney General Russell Johnson said. “But it’s not just Roane County. It’s all over East Tennessee, Tennessee and I’m sure other parts of the country, too.”
