SAN DIEGO -- Bogus bomb threats were called in to public schools in the East Village, Sherman Heights and University City Friday morning, prompting lockdowns and evacuations while police searched and cleared the three campuses.

Lt. Tony Gutierrez with the San Diego Community College District police department said a man with an accent called the schools and said, "Everyone is going to die." Police were lead to believe a bomb was possibly a part of the threat.

Menacing calls were received about 9 a.m. at Sherman Elementary School on 22nd Street and Curie Elementary School on Governor Drive, according to San Diego Unified School District officials.

Staffers at both schools notified police, and students were evacuated to a safe place on campus as officers and service dogs were summoned to comb the grounds and buildings for hazards. The searches were complete and the security alerts lifted by 10:45 a.m., after which classes resumed, district spokeswoman Linda Zintz said.

A third bomb threat, meanwhile, was directed at San Diego Early/Middle College on the grounds of San Diego City College on Park Boulevard. The SDUSD school and another building were evacuated.

School police conducted a security sweep of the downtown campus and lifted the lockdown shortly after noon, according to district officials.

No explosives or other types of hazards were found at any of the schools, the spokeswoman said.

Police believe the same person was responsible for all three threats. At this point they are working to find out who the caller was.

        Thank you for your conversation officer Boyd. Unfortunately it gets us no further to the truth. I want justice for my daughter. I don’t threaten schools or children. You got the wrong man. I want Justice. Justice is what I want. Attorney Susan Schnepf made with the mother Cara Hawkins and some stupid man called Jeff Clark, a sugar daddy as child protective services would say. A fraudulent court order. You have Judges like Margo Lewis protecting corrupt Attorneys like Susan Schnepf. You stop my daughter Aurora Cooper to know her dad and family and her name. You sit there while schools register my daughter under false names illegally. Your a disgrace as a police officer. I told everyone at the start of this, do not fuck around with my child, you did. That is a big mistake. My daughter my concern, don’t you dare with you corrupt attorney’s and corrupt court orders tell me I can’t speak to my child. Don’t you call me when the FBI and Police are running from me. I want Justice. YOUR COURT SYSTEM IS CORRUPT. Don’t you give false statements out about Aurora’s Father. You want me to give $100,000, to the mother $1,000,0000. over 18 years to the mother. What idiots are you, that’s blackmail. This is the beginning, I suggest you encourage the mother to give up. YOU WON’T BEAT AURORA COOPER’s DAD. Ain’t happening. LONG WAY TO GO

          You have a very big problem, your courts and authorities have a very big problem over my daughter, she is 6, so it is not going away. Take me on, you would be stupid, and I will make you look stupid now in front of everyone.

      • William Cooper

        You get your court orders you get your warrants and come to England, I will send you home with your tail in between your legs. Don’t patronise me. I will slaughter you over my daughter on her human rights alone.

      • William Cooper

        Cara Hawkins had my daughter for money, and it is shocking that authorities encourage it. Aurora Cooper has one parent that loves her, that is her DAD. I don’t have children for money. I had AURORA COOPER TO LOVE AND RAISE HER as a father, YOUR A DISGRACE.

        are you investigating court corruption Police Boyd, are you? You ask me stupid questions about “are you threatening our president?” you stupid idiot. Are you investigating court corruption? You ask me that am I threatening your president? if that is what it takes to get Justice in your court system yes I am threatening your president. I suggest he does not come to England. So come on Mr. Police Officer Boyd, you stupid prick. You stole my daughter from me and my daughter from her Dad. What are you going to do to protect your president. stupid idiot, your questions were immature and stupid. Yes Mr. Boyd I am going to kill the president of the USA. Now about my daughters school records, can I have them it is law.
