CHAGRIN FALLS – The campus of Chagrin Falls High School was evacuated due to a bomb threat Thursday afternoon.
According to police, a picture with a photo of a bomb, along with the day’s date, was found on a bathroom wall in the High School. The entire campus of students grade 7-12 was evacuated as investigators searched and cleared the building of all threats.
As the response to the threat continued, officers says someone who ‘misperceived the police activity’ called in a 911 report saying there was an active shooter on the campus. No evidence was found and the campus was declared ‘all clear’ by 5:43 p.m.
District superintendent Robert Hunt sent parents a recorded message around 3:30 p.m.
In the message, Hunt said the entire 7-12 campus at 400 East Washington Street was evacuated after the threat was received.
Students were moved to St. Joan of Arc Catholic school about 1,000 feet east of the campus.
