LOS ANGELES - All schools in the Los Angeles Unified School District were closed Tuesday after a credible terrorist threat, the superintendent said.

More than 640,000 students were affected. Parents were told not to send their students to school in a statement by the superintendent made just after 7 a.m. Tuesday.

The threat was sent electronically and only referenced Los Angeles-area schools. It mentioned backpacks and other packages, but the exact nature of the threat was "unspecified," LAUSD Superintendent Ramon Cortines said at a morning news conference. Authorities were still analyzing the threat and all Los Angeles law enforcement agencies were working together to search every school in the district, he said.

"I've asked the plant managers to walk the school, and if they see anything that is out of order to contact the police," Cortines said.

Cortines said he felt the precautionary closures were necessary because of the recent mass shooting in San Bernardino.

There have been no threats to San Diego school, according to the San Diego Unified School District, but district officials are in contact with Los Angeles school officials and San Diego school police are increasing  security patrols as a precaution.

  • Bad Guy always gets a weapon! Pro Choice means Pro - Tection!

    And they want legitimate and upright citizens to agree with more restrictions on fire arms? The bad guy doesn’t follow the laws so the law would only be restricting upright citizens! Preposterous and stupid! Why would anyone support more restrictions when California already has the some of the harshest restrictions already? Stay Pro Choice! Write your assembly member and tell him how important it is you have the choice on how you protect your family, your loved ones, your business, and your way of life! The Bad guy will always get a weapon! These Jihadists will continue to attack using pressure cookers (Boston) 747’s (New York) pipe bombs (San Bernardino) . Preserve your rights to protection Email your assembly member and tell them how important it is to keep your 2nd amendment rights!
