Authorities across nation probe threats against schools


DENVER (AP) -- Media outlets across the United States, from New England to Wisconsin and California, as well as in the United Kingdom are reporting school evacuations because of threats.

Authorities in Colorado and New Hampshire say the threats led to the evacuation of some schools.

A spokeswoman for the Colorado Division of Emergency Management, Micki Trost, says the threats made Monday appear to be related to the ones made at schools across the country.

In Colorado, two elementary schools in Parker and Pueblo County were evacuated but other schools that got what were described as automated threats remained in session. In New Hampshire, police say at least four schools were evacuated.

Recent previous threats made against multiple districts including Los Angeles and New York City have turned out to be hoaxes.
