Police investigating email after Coffee County school lockdown

Posted: Updated:
MANCHESTER, TN (WSMV) -

A lockdown has been lifted Wednesday afternoon at Coffee County Central High School in Manchester after the school allegedly received an email threat.

Manchester police say the email was vague and "semi-threatening," so school administrators initiated the lockdown while police investigated.

Assistant Police Chief Adam Floied said the email apparently originated from the account of a Rutherford County man who denies sending the message.

Police say the man has no ties to Coffee County schools or the area, and they are looking into the possibility his account was somehow hacked.

The investigation is ongoing, and no other information has been released.
