Tiktok Bomb Threat Trend Makes its Way to Newark Science High School


Emergency responders are on the scene investigating a bomb threat at a high school in Newark at this time. 

At approximately 11 a.m., police were notified of a threat made to the Science Park School located at 370 Norfolk Street. 

Firefighters arrived and began to take preventive actions around the school while police investigated the incident inside the building.
