San Gabriel, CA - Gabrielino High School in San Gabriel has reopened and resumed normal operations after a bomb threat forced a lockdown and evacuation of the campus on Tuesday morning, according to the San Gabriel Police Department.
The police department said it received a call around 10:45 a.m. from an anonymous caller who claimed there was a bomb at the high school located at 1327 S. San Gabriel Blvd. The police responded to the scene and placed the school on lockdown as a precautionary measure, while also advising the public to avoid the area.
