WILMINGTON, Del. (AP) - Delaware State Police are investigating after multiple bomb threats were made at schools around the state.

Police say several Delaware schools were evacuated Monday after receiving computer-generated phone calls issuing bomb threats.

Master Cpl. Gary E. Fournier says schools that received threats included Henry B. du Pont Middle School, Caesar Rodney High School, Indian River High School and Seaford Middle School.

Fournier says in each instance, the school office received a “robotic style or computer generated voice phone call” with the threat, prompting an evacuation of each school.

Fournier says searches were conducted but nothing suspicious was found.

According to police, Dover High School, Smyrna Elementary School and Lulu M. Ross Elementary School also received threats.

Similar threats Monday were also reported at schools in Maryland and Virginia.
