San Francisco police are evacuating a private high school in the city’s Ingleside neighborhood this afternoon following a report that the school received a bomb threat.
According to San Francisco police spokeswoman Grace Gatpandan, the bomb threat was received shortly after 12:40 p.m. at Lick-Wilmerding High School at 755 Ocean Ave., less than a block away from the Balboa Park BART station.
A police bomb squad has set up at City College of San Francisco’s campus, located across the street from Lick-Wilmerding.
Gatpandan said bomb-sniffing dogs are on scene and that almost the entire school appears to have been vacated as of about 3 p.m.
She said police are investigating who delivered the threat to the school and by what means the threat was delivered.
Officers are searching the buildings for harmful devices.
