BRANFORD, CT (WFSB) – A middle school student is in custody after making a threat against a Branford school on Wednesday.

Police said it was called in to Walsh Intermediate School.

Walsh was placed into a lockdown. It has been lifted, said police.

Police said most of the students had already gone home at the time of the lockdown because it was an “early release” day.

There is no threat to the public, Branford police said.

“The student has been referred to juvenile court and other appropriate services,” said police.

“The Police Department would like to thank the public for their support and for providing vital information regarding this case which led to a swift resolution,” said Branford police.
