A Roman Catholic church in the Connecticut town where a
gunman shot dead 20 school children was evacuated after a
bomb threat was reported by officials during services.
After searching the St. Rose of Lima Catholic church, police
determined that it was safe to re-enter, though the building
would remain closed for the rest of the day, an officer at
the scene said.
The church is about a mile from the Sandy Hook Elementary
School where a gunman killed 20 children and six adults and
then himself on Friday (local time).
Police also warned of threats and false representations on
social media sites, and said they were investigating for
possible criminal violations.
