MIDDLETOWN, Conn. (CBS Connecticut) _ No one was hurt and a suspect is under arrest after Vinal Technical High School in Middletown was locked down for about 45 minutes Tuesday afternoon.

State Police Lt. Paul Vance says a student at the school, Mark Andrade, 18, of Guilford, was arrested on threatening and breach of peace charges.

Around 12:48 p.m. school officials were notified of a threatening note discovered in the school and the building was immediately put in lock down.

Andrade is held on $10,000 bond and is due in Middletown Superior Court Wednesday.
