Kansas City, MO - Oak Park High School in Kansas City, MO is evacuating students by the busload and the bomb squad is on scene.
The Clay County Sheriff’s Office is on scene and deputies are escorting students out, and onto buses. The busses are then transporting students to Staley High School.
According to Fox4, the school principal left this voicemail for parents:
“Oak Park High School is currently on lockdown as we investigate an anonymous threat. Law enforcement is on site, assisting the investigation and working to keep everyone safe. We do not have a lot of details at this time but we will give you an additional messenger at a later time as soon as we have more information and learn more. We know this is a stressful time and appreciate your cooperation and patience. Student safety is our priority here at Oak Park High School and we'll try to keep you as informed as we possibly can. Please expect a follow-up messenger soon.”
It's believed that the alarm started when a male called police, said he was being bullied, and threatened to shoot up the school unless he was stopped. Police said that was not a credible threat, and then they received a bomb threat.
Deputies have the school surrounded as the evacuation takes place.
There is no information at this time if the threat has been determined to be credible.
