Bomb threat evacuates students in New Prague, MN

Posted: Updated:

NEW PRAGUE, Minn. (AP) - Students who returned to school in New Prague following a fake call about a shooting have been evacuated again because of a bomb threat.

The school district's website says middle school students were sent to the ice arena after the threat was made Thursday morning, just a day after someone called 911 to report a shooter on campus with an assault rifle. Authorities determined that call was a hoax, but not before hundreds of students were locked in their classrooms while dozens of law enforcement officers searched the multi-building campus. A 12-year-old boy was arrested.

The school district says students returned to class Thursday after police gave the OK.
