‘I will blowup the bombs’ Threat Sent to Multiple School Districts Throughout the Nation; FBI at Fortuna Schools Today
Law enforcement has been scrambling to respond as school districts throughout California received a violent threat by email. Fortuna Police provided a text of the email. It read,
Hello, you have made a choice to not listen to us. I got bullied at this school and you did nothing. Now you will understand the true mean of pain. I am coming into school with 3 bombs, and a .22 hand gun. If I see any staff or student I will shoot them and kill them. When I run out of bullets, I will slit there throats and watch them bleed out on the floor. If I see any police at the school I will blowup the bombs.
According to Sgt. Charles Ellebrecht of the Fortuna Police, “We had the FBI on scene within 10-15 minutes” of receiving the email. Ellebrecht said there were multiple emails received at least throughout through the Nation and the FBI said they originated in Ukraine.

Officials believe the threat originated with a group in Switzerland that has made numerous fictitious bomb threats to school in the United Kingdom the past few weeks, said Music Watson, a spokeswoman for the San Diego County Office of Education. The group said via Twitter they were planning to target U.S. schools Monday, she said.
“The threats are fictitious, and are aimed at causing fear and panic,” she said.
