Update: The Livonia Police Department has the “poster” in custody.

PORT BARRE, La. - The Port Barre High School was placed on a temporary precautionary lockdown due to a threatening social media post.

Lafayette high school and Livinia high school were also placed on temporary lockdown in reference to the same post. All three agencies coordinated and shared information which concluded lafayette High and Port Barre High were not targets of the post and the lockdown has been lifted.

The Snapchat post was posted by a Livonia high school student. The post indicated the target school as “LHS”. The post appears to be a generic copy and paste type where the name of the school can be changed or edited.

Chief Boudreaux says, “I’ve spoken to the Livonia police chief, his agency is actively investigating the origins of the post.”
