FREDERICKSBURG, Texas (KXAN) — Bomb-sniffing dogs are going through Fredericksburg High School to make sure there are no devices in the school after a threat was made Tuesday morning.
The Fredericksburg Police Department said at 10:41 a.m., a student at the school received a text message from an unknown person stating that a device was in the school. The school district evacuated everyone from the high school and the nearby Primary School was placed on lockdown.

When police and fire crews conducted an initial search of the school, no devices were found. But, the San Antonio Police Department was called in to assist with their K9’s, where they also determined there was no device. The all clear was given at 2:30 p.m.
The investigation into who made the threat is currently underway.
