Westminster High School Closes In Response To Threats Day After Columbine Anniversary

Posted: Updated:

WESTMINSTER, Colo. — Officials say they found nothing suspicious at a Colorado high school after classes were canceled because administrators found an online threat.

A spokesman for the Adams County School District would not release details of the threat at Westminster High School.

Officials locked down the school and called for extra law enforcement around 7 a.m. Wednesday, about an hour after students arrived for first period. All the students were searched for weapons and sent home.

Spokesman Jason Kosena says sheriff's deputies found nothing suspicious and classes will resume Thursday. There are no suspects.

The threat comes a day after the 11th anniversary of the deadly shootings at Columbine High School.

Westminster is about 12 miles north of Denver.
