Harrison Co. courthouses reopen after bomb threat

HARRISON COUNTY, MS (WLOX) - The Harrison County Courthouses in Gulfport and Biloxi have re-opened after a bomb threat was called in Monday morning.

The phone call wasn't specific about which courthouse was targeted. So, to be safe, both courthouses were evacuated.

Keesler's Bomb Squad was put on standby, but within a half hour the all-clear was given and people began returning to the courthouses.
