(MONROE, Conn.) — Students at Sandy Hook Elementary School had to be evacuated Wednesday morning after a bomb threat was phoned in.

Police in Monroe, Connecticut, said the school was thoroughly searched but no device was found. Classes should resume Thursday.

Authorities are now trying to determine who called in the threat.

The school in Monroe has the same name as the Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown that was the scene of a devastating shooting spree on December 14, 2012.

Twenty first-grade children and six school officials were gunned downed by 20-year-old Adam Lanza, who earlier killed his mother before taking his own life as police closed in.

The school where the massacre took place was razed in 2013.
