OAKLAND CITY, IN (WFIE) -

An investigation is underway into a threat that put all of Oakland City schools into lockdown Thursday.

A principal heard about the threat around 10:40 a.m. and called the police. Because of the severity of the threat, a number of police officers responded.

A state police canine was on the scene but never found anything suspicious.

Oakland City University never directly received a threat, but it was also put on lockdown for precautionary measures. It has since been lifted.

The investigation will continue and school will resume as normal on Friday.
