The threat was non descriptive, but yet threatening. It was specific enough to indicate something was going to happen at the school and would involve injury,” Woolford said.</p><p>The Ashland Police Department was just one of many entities involved in the investigation.</p><p>“Multiple agencies were contacted to include University of Missouri Police, Capitol Police, Ashland Police Department, ATF, and school staff because the threat was against the high school,” Woolford said.</p><p>Reddin described what happened at the home of the teen that was suspected of sending the text message, where officers arrived at around 2:00am Tuesday.</p><p>“Our deputy along with Ashland police responded back to the residence on Bob Beach Road, it was at that time to take the 17 year old student into custody for investigation due to the threat made against the school.

It is a tragic, tragic loss what occurred, and it’s going to take time. We’ll work closely with our community churches, counseling resources, definitely," Felmlee said.</p><p>Classes will resume Wednesday.

In the press release, Nixon is quoted as saying:</p><blockquote><p>“Our educators and law enforcement officials are dedicated to keeping the children of Missouri safe. This event reminds us of the vital nature of that responsibility. Tragic events of this nature demonstrate the serious manner in which these responsibilities should be carried out. The state of Missouri has made, and will continue to make, law enforcement and other resources available as necessary.”</p></blockquote><p><strong>UPDATE 11:48am&nbsp;</strong></p><p>The Boone County Sheriff's Department and Ashland Police department issued this press release Tuesday morning detailing the incident. Police say they went to the home of the 17-year-old suspected of&nbsp; making a threat against the high school that led to classes being canceled Tuesday. The release says while the Ashland High School student was being taken into custody he "obtained a gun" and shot himself in the chest. The departments and the school superintendent will hold a press conference to talk about the incident at 12:30 today, and a&nbsp;KBIA reporter will be there.
