SANTEE, Calif. (AP) - A three-hour lockdown has been lifted at a suburban San Diego high school after a bomb threat prompted a large law enforcement response.

San Diego County Sheriff’s Department spokeswoman Jan Caldwell says investigators found no hazardous devices in four suspicious backpacks at West Hills High School in Santee. A person who sounded like a male juvenile called the school Tuesday morning to say he was tired of being bullied. The caller said that four backpacks placed around campus would explode in 20 minutes.

No explosives detonated during that time but students and staff were kept inside classrooms. Buses lined up to prepare for evacuation before the lockdown was lifted.
