Bomb threats prompt evacuations at Lowell High School, Lakeshore Elementary

Lowell High School and the neighboring Lakeshore Elementary were evacuated this afternoon after a bomb threat was called in, according to school district officials.

The call was made to the school around 1:10 p.m., according to the district.

District officials said most students had already left the campus for the day, but both campuses were evacuated as a precaution and students were released for the rest of the day.

Police Officer Robert Rueca said streets around the schools are closed and residents in the area are being asked to shelter in place.

Officers were still searching Lowell as of around 2:30 p.m., but there were no injuries reported and no signs of suspicious devices had been located, Rueca said.
