Bomb threats have forced three Massachusetts schools to evacuate students.
Police are investigating bomb threats made against Arlington High School, Groton Middle School and the Florence Roche School on Tuesday morning, NECN has reported. Arlington High has been dismissed, and the other two schools have been evacuated.
Police have said that Arlington High received a robocall threatening that a bomb would be detonated and students would be shot as they fled, the Boston Globe reported in a related article.
“We are doing a controlled release,’’ Arlington Police Chief Frederick Ryan said to the Globe. “We are sheltering in place while we are releasing students by [building] assignment.”
