    Police said they did not find any weapons.

    Concord-Carlisle Regional School District Superintendent Diana Rigby said no students or staff were ever in immediate danger. Rigby would not elaborate on the nature of the threats.

    The Concord police chief said, "“The threats were very disturbing. They were specific.” 

    He added that the threats were against a select few people, not the entire school.

    In a note sent home to parents Wednesday night, Rigby said the unnamed student will not return to school.

    Police say they're still investigating the matter, and there will be an increased police presence at the high school.

    The teen will be arraigned in Framingham Juvenile Court. It's not clear if he has an attorney.

    The incident remains under investigation.
