Breaking: L.A. Schools Closed Due to Terror Threat Click to Tweet


The Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD) announced Tuesday morning that all of its schools will be closed for the day due to a terror threat. The Los Angeles Police Department confirmed that a bomb threat was called in to a school board member, the Los Angeles Times reports.

(Update: Rep. Brad. Sherman (D-CA) has reportedly said (via HotAir) that the threat came from a person who claimed to be a radical Islamist:

I have reviewed the email that was sent to a Los Angeles school board member.

The author claims to be an extremist Muslim who has teamed up with local jihadists. We do not know whether these claims are true or a lie. We do not know whether this email is from a devout Muslim who supports jihadists or perhaps a non-Muslim with a different agenda.

Sherman notes that there is no way yet to verify the claim.

In addition, Sherman told CNN that the threat made a “pornographic reference,” claimed to have access to nerve agents, and said there were 32 accomplices in the plot.)
