Bomb threat evacuates church in Newtown

NEWTOWN, Conn. -

NEWTOWN, Conn. (AP) - Worshippers have hurriedly left a church in Newtown, Conn., saying there was a bomb threat.

Police in SWAT gear arrived at the St. Rose of Lima Church not far from the elementary school where 20 kids and six adults were killed Friday.

There was no official report from police about the threat or evacuation.

It's not clear if there actually was a threat or if, like many tragedies, whether it was a hoax or the result of a community on edge.
