A masked man ordered children be evacuated at Eagle Valley Elementary School in Eagle Mountain, Utah, so that “no one will get hurt.” The threat prompted bomb squad and sniper-armed police to the scene, where evacuations took place. The suspect is in custody, the Utah County Sheriff’s Department told KSTU.
All children are off the school premises, Assistant to the Superintendent of the Alpine School District Kimberly Bird told KSTU.
