New York City received similar threats to those made throughout the Los Angeles School District, but local officials are investigating the incident as a hoax and it was determined the New York City school system was not in any danger.
The New York Police Department and Mayor Bill de Blasio said New York school officials received the threats after news reports surfaced of credible threats in Los Angeles.
New York City Police Commissioner Bill Bratton said the Los Angeles Unified School District threats were "not credible" and the decision to shut down schools was an overreaction.
Mayor de Blasio assured New Yorkers that city schools are not in danger. "Our schools are safe. Kids should be in school today," de Blasio said.
