Anonymous threat leads to closure of Lockport High School


LOCKPORT, N.Y. (WIVB) — Students and staff will return to Lockport High School on Tuesday, one day after an anonymous threat kept everyone home.

Police say the call, which school officials later said included a bomb threat, was phoned in on the school’s tipline. The city school district later said after investigation, there was no evidence of a credible threat.

Around 8 a.m., police were at the school, and a drone was flying back-and-forth above the high school. All streets in front of the school, as well as nearby side streets, were closed down.
