BREAKING NEWS: At Least 9 New Jersey High Schools Received Bomb And Mass Shooting Threat (Video)
Four of the nine New Jersey schools that received mass shooting and bomb threats have been cleared of danger, a police source familiar with the investigation told NBC 4 New York.
Schools in Tenafly, Leonia, Bergenfield, and Teaneck were cleared at about 11:00 a.m., the source said. The remaining 5 schools, in Garfield, Clifton, Fair Lawn, Englewood and Hackensack, were expected to be cleared soon after.
All nine of the schools were evacuated or placed on lockdown after officials at each received threats from someone claiming to have planted a bomb or was planning mass shootings, authorities said. In some of the towns, schools not mentioned in the threat were also being checked out by police.
All of the schools are in Bergen County; it’s not clear if other schools throughout the state had also received the threats.
It was not immediately clear how all the threats were received. At least three of the schools received them over voice mail, authorities said. More
