ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. – Parents woke up Monday to a notice about a threat to shoot up Roswell schools.


"We received notice at about 5:30 this morning when dispatch notified us they had received a call from a CIA federal office back on the East Coast. That office had received a threatening email claiming that somebody wanted to shoot up Roswell schools," said Todd Wildermuth, public information officer for the Roswell Police Department.

The police department and the school district began investigating, with the help of the FBI. Their top priority was to make sure students and staff were safe.

"There was no credible threat related to that email,” Wildermuth said. The school buildings were safe and kids were able to return safely.”

The CIA said the email was sent from a 53-year-old woman, who used to live in Roswell but is now in Texas.

The case is under investigation.
