Roseville police are investigating a juvenile in connection with a fake bomb threat Thursday targeting a middle school.

Officers were called to Roseville Middle School around 1:50 p.m. on a report of a bomb in the building.

The school was evacuated before explosive-detecting canine units checked the site. No explosives were found, police said in a statement. 

Investigators identified the youth responsible for the report, according to the release. That person does not live in Roseville, attend the district or have known ties to either, the release said.

"This individual is still under investigation and charges may be filed," police said. "... No further information will be released regarding the juvenile in question."

The incident came two days after someone falsely reported a gun at the school, which sparked a lockdown there and at nearby Steenland Elementary, police said.

"The Roseville Police Department is asking all parents to educate your children on the ramifications of these types of false reports," police said Thursday.
