Hoax Bomb Threat Forces MacArthur High School to Evacuate

IRVING — Police in Irving are investigating after a bomb scare forced students at MacArthur High School to evacuate.


Officer James McLellan with the Irving Police Department says a call came into the school’s main phone line just before 10 a.m., saying a bomb was inside the school and it would explode in 30 minutes.

The school was evacuated and officers swept the school, finding no evidence of a bomb.

The “All Clear” was given and the students returned to class.

MacArthur High School was put under the national spotlight earlier this month when a teacher called police to report student Ahmed Mohamed bringing a “suspicious device” to school. The device turned out to be a homemade clock.

The charges were dropped and Mohamed has un-enrolled from the school.
