St. Rose of Lima, a Roman Catholic church just a mile from the Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut, was just evacuated. Worshippers are “saying there was a bomb threat,” local Connecticut station WOOD-TV 8 reports:
There was no official report from police about the threat or evacuation.
It’s not clear if there actually was a threat or if, like many tragedies, whether it was a hoax or the result of a community on edge.
UPDATE: All clear from #Newtown, Conn. church where SWAT team entered a building next door to where mass was taking place
