Bomb threat in Ypsilanti school causes lockdown, evacuation
A "hand-written bomb threat" on a bathroom wall at Lincoln High School in Ypsilanti Wednesday afternoon led to an evacuation of the school and a lockdown of the remaining Lincoln Consolidated Schools buildings.
The threat was found shortly after noon and was reported to school leadership, and then to police. Authorities Wednesday were inside the high school looking for hazardous materials.
"This is something we take very seriously," said Derrick Jackson, a spokesman for the Washtenaw County Sheriff's Office, which is investigating.
The statement reads:
"Lincoln High School students and staff have been evacuated.
All district buildings have been placed in lockdown. No one will be allowed to enter or leave the buildings until further notice.
Information will be updated as soon as possible."
