An unknown person told Baker Middle School officials there was a bomb planted in the building Thursday, according to a Columbus Police report.

The school was evacuated at about 8:10 a.m. after a person who sounded like a juvenile male called and allegedly said, "There's a bomb at Mar... Baker Middle."

No strange or unexplained items were found when police swept the building. Students were allowed to return to class shortly after.
