11:29 a.m.: Campus evacuated after bomb threat; polling location moved

Palisades Charter High School has been evacuated after a bomb threat received Tuesday morning, according to police.

The school received a bomb threat via social media at about 8:24 a.m., and faculty reported it to authorities, Los Angeles Police spokesman Drake Maddison told KPCC.

A polling place located on campus has been moved to Palisades Lutheran Church on Sunset Boulevard, according to the L.A. County Registrar-Recorder's office.

Students and teachers were evacuated and the area was still being swept, Madison said. He told the Los Angeles Times that bomb-sniffing dogs were called in to search the campus.

Madison said they still did not have a suspect.

Correction: An earlier version of this story included the wrong address for a relocated polling place. That information came from police after the polling place at Palisades Charter High School was closed due to a bomb threat on the campus. The L.A. County Registrar-Recorder's office tells KPCC that voters who were supposed to vote at the high school should report instead to Palisades Lutheran Church on Sunset Boulevard.
