Shaw Heights Middle School evacuated after threat on voicemail

WESTMINSTER, Colo. - Hundreds of students at Shaw Heights Middle School were evacuated Monday morning after a threat was left on voicemail for the school.

The students were moved to Ranum Middle School out of "an abundance of caution," according to Adams County 50 School District spokesman Steve Saunders.

Police and K-9s searched Shaw Heights and found nothing, officials said.

Students were scheduled to have lunch at Ranum, then return to Shaw Heights after 1 p.m.

A post on Shaw Height's website said, "The situation at Shaw Heights has been resolved as Adams County Sheriff’s Department has investigated and found no threat present. All of our children are safe and will eat lunch at Ranum Middle School and will then return to Shaw Heights. Afternoon classes will proceed normally."

Investigators told 7NEWS if the caller is found, they could face criminal charges.
