Hartford among 4 towns investigating threats made at schools

Posted: Updated:

As police in three other towns investigate threatening phone calls, Hartford Police said they are investigating a false bomb threat at a school.

Hartford Deputy Police Chief Brian Foley said the threat is consistent with other threats to schools in the region.

The threat came in just after 12:30 p.m. at the Capitol Preparatory Magnet School on Tuesday.

A staff member told police they had received a phone call from an out-of-state number, and the caller stated that he had placed bombs across the roof of the school.

Officers checked the school and did not find anything suspicious.

On Tuesday afternoon, a phoned in threat evacuated Stamford High School.

West Haven High School was also evacuated at about 12:30 p.m. for the same reason.

Two schools in Bristol, South Side Elementary School and Bristol Central High School were evacuated after threatening phone calls were made.

It is unclear if these are all connected.

Police continue to investigate to find out where the phone calls came from.
