CINCINNATI (WXIX) - No bomb was found at Princeton High School after a “suspicious bag” was left on campus Tuesday.

Around 11 a.m., police said the threat was called into the emergency call center.

The bag was left in the school building by someone who then walked out, according to Sharonville police.

Students were evacuated, and the bomb squad dog was brought in to search the school, police said.

Sophmore O’Rion Skimmiehorn said students knew very little about what was going on.

The search concluded and found there were no bombs at Princeton High School, police said around 1:45 p.m.

Classes and school activities were canceled for the day.
