MARYSVILLE — Marysville-Pilchuck High School was evacuated around 1:45 p.m. Wednesday following a bomb threat. But a search of the campus found no devices, Marysville police said Wednesday night.

Just before school ended the school office received a call, officers said, with a robotic message, threatening a bomb was on campus.  Officers said the threat came in near the very end of the school day, and students were allowed to go home.

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

The threat comes 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.
