SAN DIEGO (NEWS 8) - The FBI is investigating after local schools are caught up in a nationwide online hoax.
According to the San Diego County Office of Education spokesperson, at least four districts got the same threatening email, Coronado, Solana Beach, Lakeside and Santee. They say they take all threats seriously.
Investigators say it was sent to schools in at least 46 states. It's believed the email originated in Europe.
