A spokesperson for Cabarrus County Schools tells My Fox Carolinas a lockdown at Jay M. Robinson High School Thursday afternoon was initiated because of some "concerning tweets" that came to the attention of the school. Ronnye Boone, spokesperson for Cabarrus County Schools, said she cannot elaborate on what was in the tweets or who sent them.

Concord Police Department Deputy Chief Allen Overcash says the lockdown came about because of an "interaction" with a student. Overcash says there was no violence, and no one was arrested. He said additional officers went to the school, and the lockdown was a precaution.

Boone says the lockdown went into effect around 12:15 p.m. and was lifted at about 1:30 p.m.
