NEW ORLEANS, La. (AP) - The FBI and Louisiana State Police say authorities in Louisiana have responded to at least 106 threats of violence in or near schools since the mass shooting at a school in Parkland, Florida, on Feb. 14.

There have been a total of 62 arrests as well.

Monday's announcement comes as the University of New Orleans is re-opening after one such threat.

New Orleans police said a 20-year-old was arrested after a weekend threat that resulted in Monday's closure at the University.

Police said Nicholas Heard told fellow UNO students we would shoot several people.
