Troopers Investigate Threats Made to High School

Wilmington, DE – The Delaware State Police are currently investigating threats made to John Dickinson High School which occurred this morning.

The initial investigation has determined that the incident began this morning, Wednesday, April 15, 2015, at approximately 8:10 a.m., after an unknown male called the main office of John Dickinson High School, located at 1801 Milltown Road, Wilmington, and advised that he was enroute to the school in order to detonate a bomb. At approximately 8:13 a.m. this morning, a second call was placed by the same suspect to the Wilmington Police Department’s emergency call center advising that he was enroute to the high school and was armed with guns.
The administration of John Dickinson High School immediately placed the school in a lockdown status. Delaware State Police K-9 units responded to the school and conducted a search of the building which was eventually cleared with nothing out of the ordinary located. There were no injuries.
The school resumed normal operations at approximately 10:05 a.m. Troopers will; however, maintain an increased presence at the school for the remainder of the day.

The investigation into this incident by the Delaware State Police is continuing.

If anyone has any information in reference to this incident, they are asked to contact Troop 6 at 302-633-5000.

Um, if I were in law enforcement, I would be visiting the caller who would be identified as the one who called. (oh, I have caller ID, maybe they don't)
