A juvenile suspect is in custody with making a terrorist threat against Piedmont High School. Piedmont police and fire personnel were called to the high school shortly before noon today in response to a bomb threat received by school officials. Police say that when they arrived, all of the faculty and students had been taken out of the building by school official and were in a safe location.
