5 bomb threats reported in 2 days at Metro Schools

Another bomb threat involving a Metro Nashville Public school has been called in, making it the fifth one over a two-day period. 

Officials confirmed another bomb threat was called in to the 911 center on Friday for Pearl Cohn High School. 

Four threats were called in on Thursday. The first was reported at Stratford High School when Metro’s Emergency Communications Center received a bomb threat. 

The school has been evacuated and police were called to the scene. 

Not long after, another threat was called in to Maplewood High School. Additional threats were later called in to East Nashville Magnet middle and high schools.

School resource officers at East Magnet High School charged a 15-year-old student with making a false report of an emergency for telephoning a bomb threat to the school.

On Friday, a 17-year-old was also charged in the threat at East Magnet High School. The teen is charged with making a false report of an emergency from the school building. Police said both are accused of passing around the same cellphone used to make the threat.

Police say they are investigating the incidents at the other schools.
