INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — A Bishop Chatard High School leader said Tuesday afternoon that a person has been arrested in connection to threats that led to an e-learning day for students.

Bill Sahm, president of the school, said in an email to parents that the threat was believed to be from the same person who was questioned by Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department last week for a “lower-level threat.”

An IMPD spokesman has confirmed Hunter Woolever, 20, Indianapolis, has been taken into custody and will be charged.

Woolever was arrested March 18 with leaving the scene of an accident, booked into Marion County Jail and later released on his own recognizance.

Bishop Chatard will have classes as usual on Wednesday, the email said. After-school activities for Tuesday remain canceled. 

The school also had an e-learning day last Tuesday, March 19, after threats were reported. 

“We will continue to address particular circumstances as they present themselves per the security plan we have in place, keeping the safety and security of our students, faculty and staff as a major priority,” said the email from Sahm. “We will be talking with students during the school day, and tomorrow (Wednesday) evening at 7 p.m. we will be hosting a parent meeting in the main gym to share with you the timeline of events, any new information that we have, and to present the security plan moving forward.”
