Chaska police say they have arrested a juvenile male in connection to a threat that led to the closure of Chaska High School Tuesday.

Police didn't provide any details about the suspect or the threat, but said he acted alone.

School administrators said Tuesday they received the threat before school started.

Officials locked down the building, and students who were on buses were taken to another location. The district decided to cancel school for the day due to the disruption.

Pioneer Ridge Middle School in Chaska was placed on an internal lockdown as a precautionary measure.
