HUNTINGTON, Ind. (WANE)  Huntington North High School was evacuated after a student found a threatening note in a bathroom around 12:30 p.m. on Wednesday, according to police.

Huntington Police Chief E.J. Carroll told NewsChannel 15 that the Sheriff’s Department handled the scene and said the school was evacuated almost immediately after school staff had been notified.

Students were evacuated to Kriegbaum Field, the school’s football field, and many of them were picked up.

Law enforcement did a sweep of the school, found nothing and cleared the scene.

Carroll said another school in Huntington had also received a threat on Monday, making Wednesday’s scare the second threat within a week.
