An 18-year-old Hazen High School senior was arrested this afternoon after allegedly calling in a bomb threat to the high school Renton Police and Renton School District officials say.
The student has not yet been charged, officials said.
Hazen High School received a call at about 10:45 this morning from an individual who claimed there was a bomb inside the school and that students and staff had one hour to evacuate the building.
School officials followed Renton School District Guidelines by calling police and evacuating the building. Renton Police searched the building, but did not find anything. After allowing the hour to elapse, students and staff re-entered the school at noon.
