Amherst – Students and faculty at Marion L. Steele High School were evacuated this morning after school officials received a call at 7:29 a.m. from a person “indicating there was a bomb in the school and it was going to detonate within a few hours,” according to Lieutenant Joe Kucirek of the Amherst Police Department.

Kucirek said that after Police and school officials conferred it was decided to evacuate the high school students to two different school buildings.

Although some thought it was just a hoax, Kucirek said they still took it very seriously and took appropriate precautions as necessary and had the necessary resources on stand-by.

“There was no indication of any suspicious items or activity to cause further concern at this time,” Kucirek said.

Students were allowed back into the building after officials gave it the all clear.
