High school students busted for 911 prank calls

Police in Sacramento, California cited two high school students Monday after they made hoax calls to 911 saying that a teacher was going to be shot.

The students made several threats, using the same cellphone, between classes. Police suspected the calls to be a hoax, but took the threats seriously.

Officers responded to the campus and quickly traced the calls back to the students. In the meantime, campus officials closed off all but one entry point to the school, asked teachers to close their doors and brought physical education classes inside. Officers cited the students for reporting a false emergency and confiscated the  phone. (Info from the Sacramento Bee.)
