COPPERAS COVE, Texas — A 16-year-old Shoemaker High School student was charged with a felony Tuesday after making a false rumor, which caused a lockdown at the school, according to the Killeen Independent School District.

Details about the rumor were not released. No students or staff were in danger, KISD said.

KISD said despite the rumor, the safety of its students are "our very highest priority." The district added that its schools work closely with police in investigating potential threats and that "we always deal aggressively with any such report."
