EAGLE MOUNTAIN — A possible bomb threat at Eagle Valley Elementary Monday afternoon caused an evacuation at the school, officials said.An intruder wearing a mask entered the school at 2:15 p.m. and said nobody would get hurt if all the students were evacuated, according to Alpine School District spokeswoman Kimberly Bird.According to Sgt. Spencer Cannon with the Utah County Sheriff’s Office, the intruder said he has a truck filled with explosives.All of the students are accounted for and are with a school administrator. Students in grades younger than second grade were evacuated to the City Center, and other grades went to a neighboring resident’s home. A lunch manager was stuck in her office inside the school, but she is OK and she got out, Bird said. Police are on scene.
“The suspect appears to be Christopher Craig, who drove onto an elementary school playground in 2014, dressed in similar Arabic neon green garb with a head covering. Craig has a history of stirring comotions, as in 2013 he disrupted multiple Colorado churches, according to the Associated Press.”
Craig has called himself an “Islamist jihadist” and sent out written threats to several media outlets before the Eagle Mountain incident Monday, according to reports.
