'Unverified bomb threat' prompts brief evacuation of Chickasaw High School

'Unverified bomb threat' prompts brief evacuation of Chickasaw High School

Following the discovery of the device at the Pine Valley High School in the city of St George, the school was evacuated for two hours while bomb squad officers swooped in to disarm it.

The backpack at Pine View High School was found by a student who reported to a teacher that smoke was coming out of it shortly after noon Monday, said St George Police Captain Giles said.

West Boylston police were called to the town's combined middle-high school on Monday and Tuesday for two back-to-back threats. They described the homemade bomb as having enough potential to cause serious injury or death.

Investigators also believe the boy is the same person who last month swapped out an American flag at another area high school for the flag of ISIS, and who spray-painted "ISIS is comi" on that school's building, Hurricane Officer Ken Thompson said Tuesday.

A Montgomery County Public Schools spokesman said the string of threats since the February 14 shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Florida is "deeply concerning".

"Their immediate action played a large role in this incident ending with no injuries", the St. George Police Department said. Oakmont High School received similar information and reported it to Roseville police.

Chinese space station Tiangong-1 could crash to Earth within weeks
Aerospace warned that the space station might be carrying a highly toxic and corrosive substance called hydrazine on board. The constantly changing "weather" in space makes it hard to predict when the space station would crash-land on Earth.

Police delivered a search warrant at the home of the young male.

The FPD said, "This case is an important reminder that threats are taken seriously and investigated".

The school was evacuated while local and federal officials investigated.

The police department hailed the students who notified faculty of the smoking backpack.

A pair of teenagers face charges this week after allegedly making threats about their Central Massachusetts High school. Police declined to identify the arrested teen or give his age. The school chose to lock the bathroom where the note was found and continue the school day as scheduled while the investigation took place, according to Fournier.
