Possible bomb threat found at Gulfport Central Middle

GULFPORT, Miss. (WLOX) - Students at Gulfport Central Middle School were evacuated after a staff member discovered a possible bomb threat.

Superintendent Glenn East said a custodian found a message written on a bathroom wall at the school referencing a bomb.

The message was written in faint pencil, but to err on the side of caution officials dismissed students early.

Gulfport police officers walked the building, but East said they did not find anything.
