An Alabama woman and two juveniles were arrested in connection with a clown hoax that triggered a lockdown at a high school.
Makayla Smith, 22, is accused of making a terroristic threat, via Facebook, to students at Flomaton High School last week.
The threat from the 'Flomo Klown" page forced dozens of police officers to respond to the school and sweep the campus.
A $200,000 bond was set for Smith, while the juveniles were released to their parents and face possible juvenile charges.
The scare started when the "Flomo Klown" Facebook page wrote "It's going down tonight" alongside crying-face and gun emojis.
A subsequent post stated "I love kids." Parents reported their children also receiving threatening private messages.
Authorities said there were no confirmed sightings of "clowns" near schools during the incident.
The suspects in the case did not attend public school in Escambia County, AL.com reported.
