McClatchy High School was evacuated for hours Thursday morning after a guitar case left in front of McClatchy High School prompted the call-out of a bomb unit to the campus.
The guitar case with two guitar foot pedals inside was found to be safe, and students returned to class after 10 a.m., Sacramento police reported.
Police said that at 7 a.m. a male left a guitar case in front of the school near the McClatchy High lion statue.
Freeport Boulevard in front of the school and its front parking lot were closed as a precaution. Students were relocated to the football field or other safe spots while bomb unit personnel examined the guitar case.
