A student was taken into custody by Columbia Borough Police after alleged threats postponed the Columbia High School football game against York Suburban High School on Friday night, according to a statement from Columbia School District.

The game has been postponed until Saturday at 2 p.m. at York Suburban High School.

The statement from the district, posted about 7 p.m. Friday night, said Columbia Borough Police had received word of a threat that existed because of something said by a student.

The school and the police department are working together to determine the seriousness of the threat, according to the statement.

"Given the recent events in the immediate community and surrounding communities, an overabundance of caution is in order at the time," the statement reads.

The postponement comes just one week after two men were shot outside of a William Penn High School football game in York City. Those shootings caused the stadium to go on lockdown, keeping the nearly 2,000 people in attendance from leaving the game.

The accused shooter, 15-year-old Stephon Brown is still being sought, according to York City Police.
