Students evacuated from LaBrae High School

Students were evacuated from LaBrae High School in Leavittsburg, Ohio.


LEAVITTSBURG, Ohio (WKBN) – Students at LaBrae High School in Leavittsburg were evacuated Tuesday.

Students were removed from the school at about 11:00 a.m. because of a bomb threat written on a restroom wall.  It all started around 10:45, when a student returned from the bathroom and told the teacher about what they saw. By 11:30, everyone was out of the building.

Authorities took the students to First Community Church on West Market Street.

Police and police dogs from Kent State University’s Trumbull Campus and Youngstown State University come to the school to investigate, as did officers from Lordstown, Warren, and the Trumbull County Sheriff’s Office.

The building was cleared right around the time of school dismissal. Some students were picked up at the church, while others returned to the school to board buses.

Warren Township Police Chief Don Bishop said there is security footage from inside the school, which will be reviewed.

“They’ll be a useful tool as we work to do our own internal investigation,” LaBrae Schools Superintendent A.J. Calderone said. “Naturally we want to pursue, you know, (a) possible criminal investigation if we get some good leads and can pinpoint and narrow this down and start doing some questioning.”
