Bomb threat at Alhambra High

Alhambra High students and faculty were evacuated earlier Friday, when an unidentified person called in a bomb threat.

The school was initially placed under lockdown, but students were quickly moved onto the track field, where they were forced to wait while the police conducted a search of the entire campus. Parents delivered food to hungry students, some of whom were keeping up with developments on their phones, according to senior Stephanie Lu. Alhambra Police Sgt. Gerry Johnson confirmed that someone had made a call regarding a "suspicious package" somewhere on campus, KPCC reports.

As of 2:30 p.m., police had not found any explosive devices and students were then permitted to return to the campus.
