TWU student who allegedly made threat detained

DENTON, Texas — A student at a North Texas university has been caught after he allegedly made a threat in class that prompted a school lockdown.

Nobody has been harmed at Texas Woman's University in Denton.

TWU shortly after 9:30 a.m. Tuesday advised students and staff to remain inside during the search for the man, who left class after making the unspecified threat.

A statement from TSU says the lockdown was lifted by late morning after the suspect was taken into custody. Further details on the man were not immediately released.

TWU, with enrollment of about 14,000, is located 50 miles north of Dallas.
