John Adams dispels Facebook bomb scare rumor

False reports of a bomb scare prompted officials at John Adams Middle School to send a message to parents Friday morning.

"Everything is safe here, no bombs, no threats, no students being tazed," Principal La Shawn Ray said a recorded message sent to parents at 10:03 a.m.

Ray said rumors of a bomb threat at the school had been circulating over the past 18 hours. There was never a bomb threat or a bomb on school property, he said.

An e-mail containing the rumor was sent to the Post-Bulletin. The e-mail said that a student had tried to set off pop bottle bomb and got tazed.

The rumor started on Facebook, district spokeswoman Jennifer Pozanc said.
