Police in California have confirmed that all Los Angeles Unified School District schools were closed Tuesday morning due to a credible threat of violence to multiple campuses, the LA Times reports.
LAUSD has more than 900 schools serving 700,000 students. Authorities are planning a search operation of all campuses. According to LAUSD Superintendent Ramon Cortines, who called the threat “rare,” the district received an electronic notice that mentioned “backpacks and other objects.”
It is unclear when the threat was made and to which school board member, but the situation prompted the LAUSD to close all schools effective immediately, according to the Los Angeles School Police.
Students and staff were directed to stay away from all campuses.
The Los Angeles Police Department was assisting with the threat investigation.
According to Reuters, police in Los Angeles say the threat is still being analyzed. The FBI has been notified.
This is a developing story.
