Teen charged with making threat against Northgate HS

COWETA COUNTY, Ga. -- A 17-year-old Coweta County resident was arrested for making a threat against Northgate High School.

Brandon Dale Hammond was charged with terroristic threats and disruption of public schools.

The threat was made Wednesday morning. Hammond was taken into custody that same evening.

Coweta County Sheriff's Capt. John G. Lewis said investigators believe the motive revolved around an "administrative incident" that occurred at the school shortly before the threat was made.

Students were evacuated to a nearby church while police searched the school building. No explosive devices were found.
