JONESVILLE, La. (KNOE) - State police are now interviewing witnesses regarding the 'kill list" that sparked the evacuation/dismissal of three schools in Catahoula Parish Wednesday.

According to Catahoula Parish Sheriff Toney Edwards, the schools affected were Block High School, Jonesville Jr. High, and Jonesville Elementary School.

Edwards says as soon as the threatening note was discovered Wednesday morning, authorities were called. Authorities were on the scene by 11:53 a.m. and students were evacuated at 12:06 p.m.

Edwards says they evacuated the students so quickly because the note with the list of names made a "promise" that something would happen at an assembly scheduled to begin at 12:30 pm. Edwards says although the note was found at Block High School, they didn't want to take any chances and ended classes at all three schools.

Parents were allowed to pick up students and those who were not picked up were put onto buses to get them off of school campus.

The sheriff says no one was hurt during the incident.

Louisiana State Police is now handling the investigation. As of 2:30 pm they were interviewing witnesses.
