Police monitor athletic fields at Marysville-Pilchuck High School in the aftermath of a shooting on the high school's campus on October 24, 2014 in Marysville, Washington.

MARYSVILLE — Two more bomb threats were called into Marysville-Pilchuck High School Thursday, police said, a day after the campus was evacuated because of a threat.

Around 7:45 a.m. Thursday, a bomb threat was called into staff at the high school, Marysville Police Commander Robb Lamoureux said . The call was electronic, staff told police, and made threats to law enforcement but not students or staff.

Marysville police responded to investigate. It was determined the call was a hoax, police said.

A second call phoned in around 11 a.m. indicated three tons of TNT was located in the parking lot with a “10-member” team of Russian gunmen, police said. This call was also deemed a hoax.

Even though no devices were found Wednesday or Thursday, Marysville police said the case is still under investigation.

The threats come less than three months after freshman Jaylen Fryberg shot five people in the school cafeteria. Fryberg died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound at the scene. One victim was killed at the scene and three more victims died in the weeks that followed, bringing the total fatalities to five, including the gunman.
