A Baltimore school was placed on lockdown Thursday morning after a 15-year-old student posted a threat referencing the Columbine school shootings on Facebook.

A Baltimore City Schools spokeswoman said Carver Vocational-Technical High School was put on lockdown for two hours as police searched the campus and the student’s home.

Nothing was found in either place, and the student was taken to a hospital for an emergency evaluation.

In April 1999, Dylan Klebold and Eric Harris, two students at Columbine High School in Colorado, killed 12 students and one teacher in a rampage that also injured 21 others.
