KATC is reporting that the W.D. Smith Career Center in Lafayette is on lockdown as authorities investigate a report that a student there warned the principal of impending violence similar to that depicted in the movie The Purge, which depicts a dystopian future in which citizens are allowed an annual night of murder and mayhem.

Details are sketchy but evidently a similar claim was made regarding Carencro High School.

Superintendent Pat Cooper referenced the film in a quote to the television station, adding that he doesn’t believe there is a legitimate threat of violence.
