CALCASIEU PARISH, LA (KPLC) -

A student has been arrested following the discovery of a "hit list" at Barbe High School, according to a news release from the Calcasieu Parish Sheriff's Office.

Authorities said on Thursday, at about 2 p.m., Calcasieu Parish Sheriff's Office Safe School deputies responded in reference to a possible "hit list" found at Barbe High School which reportedly included several names of students and faculty.

Authorities said after an investigation, 18-year-old Patrick W. Granger was arrested Friday in connection with making the list.

"At this stage of the investigation, detectives have not found that Granger had any intent or ability to carry out the act," the release states.

Authorities said when questioned by detectives, Granger "admitted" to the making the list, but said he intended it as a "prank."

"However, whether he intended it to be prank or not, it was determined that he intentionally left out the list to be found, which caused alarm and disruption at the school which violates Louisiana law of terrorizing," the release states.

Granger was booked into the Calcasieu Correctional Center and charged with terrorizing. 

Bond in the case is pending.
