AURORA, Colo. — Another bomb threat rang out in Colorado on Thursday, this time leading to the evacuation of an Aurora high school, but the threat was deemed "not credible" after it was checked by police.

Students were evacuated from Gateway High School just after 2 p.m. when administrators called police to notify them of a bomb threat over the phone. 

But just before 3 p.m., the Aurora Police Department said the school had been checked and that "nothing suspicious was located."

"Threat deemed not credible. School will resume as normal," APD wrote on Twitter.

The bomb threat appears to be the latest in a string of bomb threats across Colorado, one of which resulted in an arrest.
