Posted by Martin Finucane May 4, 2007 10:20 AM


King Philip High School in Wrentham was evacuated for about two hours yesterday after a bomb threat was found written on a wall, Wrentham police said. No bomb was found.

At about 8 a.m., school officials reported the threat, which stated someone was going to die, said Wrentham Detective Sergeant William McGrath. Police from Wrentham, Plainville, Norfolk, and the State Police bomb squad responded, and the school was evacuated.

McGrath said police conducted a "floor by floor, locker by locker" search. Students returned to class at about 10 a.m. McGrath said police suspect the threat was written by a student. The threat is under investigation.
