About two hours after an online post threatened violence at Edina High School Friday, police said they identified and arrested the juvenile responsible.

District officials said Edina police notified them about the threat shortly after midnight. Classes started as normal Friday.

Here is part of the statement from the high school:

"At this time, the threat is unfounded and the situation is under control. Classes at all schools will proceed as normal today. The safety of our students and staff is always our top priority and we take threats against our schools seriously. We are fortunate to have a strong relationship with our local law enforcement and appreciate the work they have done to identify the individual responsible for this threat in such an expedient and professional manner."
