San Diego JCC Evacuated After Emailed Bomb Threat

A JCC outside San Diego evacuated the building and called the police after receiving an emailed bomb threat.

It was the second threat the Lawrence Family Jewish Community Center in La Jolla, California received in the past month.

A police search of the facility found no evidence of explosive materials in the building.

This is the latest threat in a series of threats to JCCs and other Jewish centers across the country.
