Officials at Yorktown High School evacuated all students and staffers this morning after a bomb scare. Police say officials at Yorktown High School received a threatening call around 9 a.m. and found a letter that indicated an explosive device was in the building. The school's 2,000 occupants were led out onto the athletic fields, and then pushed farther away to an adjacent middle school. Yorktown, Westchester County and MTA police units rushed to the school to investigate the situation. County bomb squads were also on the scene with eight bomb-sniffing dogs. The students returned to the school after police searched hallways, lockers and every car in the parking lot. Police have not reported any injuries.
