Long Island City High School was evacuated this morning after an unidentified man called the school saying there was a bomb inside the building, according to the police.
Police arrived at the high school, located at 14-30 Broadway, around 11:30 a.m. to search for explosives, shortly after the bomb threat was called in. A sweep was conducted and nothing was found.
Broadway was closed to traffic between 21st Street and 14 Street during the search. The area has since reopened.
*UPDATE* Broadway between 21st Street and 12th Street has been re-opened. There was an emergency at Long Island City High School, everyone is safe. We thank all for their cooperation.
