Sequoia Schools Searched After Caller Says "You're Next"

Sequoia Middle and Elementary schools weren't evacuated, but police searched the grounds, finding nothing suspicious

OUTSIDE SAN FRANCISCO -- Police searched two schools this morning after a man called one of the campuses and said, "You're next."

Sgt. Tim Frank said the call came to Sequoia Middle School about 10 a.m. and was taken by a student, who then informed school administrators.

Pleasant Hill Police searched the grounds of the Boyd Road campus and nearby Sequoia Elementary School for about 40 minutes and found nothing suspicious.

The schools were not evacuated. Frank said classroom doors were locked, but teachers continued their normal classroom activities.

Frank said the search was a standard precautionary measure, especially in light of the mass shooting last Friday at a Connecticut elementary school.

Investigators are now trying to determine who placed this morning's phone call.

Found out recently there is another way to make calls and not have your own number show up but someone else's number if you own a smart phone. I have been getting calls from strangers from other states telling me I just called them when I did not. No outgoing call to their number on my cell phone at all. Just their call to me. This is what my telephone company is telling me.

Place three or four armed veterans in every school. There are thousands of well trained unemployed veterans, Marines and Army who would love the job of protecting our precious children!

My point was Timothy McVeigh, a decorated Army veteran of the Persian Gulf War, was responsible for the worse act of murder in US history and a lot of children died in Oklahoma City that day. So this is kind of a bizarre idea. Every group has its share of bad apples, vets, teachers, parents, you name it. Schools need to be gun free unless it is a police officer imo.

Mike Murphy from Brookfield, CT, I live on the other side of the country and feel like I've been in a fog since hearing the first reports. To say God Bless feels like I'm inviting the most logical human question, but it's the only thing I know to say. May God Bless your communities in this time of incomprehensible sorrow.

Not since NPR's disastrous handling of the Juan Williams firing have I seen something as inane as your comment. Congratulations.
