SEAFORD, DEL. (AP) - State police have arrested four people after bomb threats and text messages warning of shootings disrupted the final day of state standardized testing at 10 southern Delaware schools.

Investigators say a woman and three juveniles are responsible for the text messages that circulated throughout the Seaford and Woodbridge School Districts on Friday.

Police say detectives traced the messages back to the originating cell phone.

Extra troopers were sent to three schools after students got text messages saying a student would be shot between 8 a.m. and noon. Meanwhile, the Laurel School District sent all students home after getting bomb threats. Those threats are still under investigation.

No violent incidents were reported, and no bombs or suspicious packages were found.
