Evacuations ordered at La. college after threat

NATCHITOCHES, La. (AP) — Several buildings were evacuated for a time at a Louisiana college and classes have been canceled after a high school housed on the campus received a bomb threat.

Northwestern State police today cleared out buildings next to the Louisiana School for Math, Science and the Arts shortly before noon. The high school also was evacuated. Officials said later today that no explosives were found and both the university and high school were declared safe.

Details about the threat were not immediately released. Messages left with campus and city police were not immediately returned.

Northwestern State has about 4,500 students. It wasn’t clear how many students attend the high school, which is a boarding school.
