A 15-year-old boy is charged with uttering threats following a lockdown at a Windsor high school.

About 900 students at the Walkerville Collegiate Institute were told to stay in their classrooms Thursday morning after Windsor police informed the Greater Essex County District School Board a serious threat targeted staff and students at the school.

Over the noon hour, police arrested the teen at a home in the 1500-block of Bruce Ave.

Students returned to class a short time later.
