The Los Angeles Police Department investigated two bomb threats near a Jewish synagogue in Koreatown, L.A. early Tuesday morning.
At approximately 2 a.m. police received an emergency phone call from an unknown suspect saying a device had been planted on the grounds of Wilshire Boulevard Temple.
“Early this morning, we received a bomb threat specific to the Temple campus in the Mid-Wilshire district,” the temple said in a statement. “Our immediate action was to close the facility and make sure all of our families and staff who attend school and work there were informed of the closure, and stayed at home. As a result, the Mid-Wilshire campus is empty. We are currently assisting LAPD and other law enforcement in their investigation.”
Then, at about 8 a.m., police received another call saying there was a bomb at the intersection of Wilshire and South Hobart boulevards.
