PORTLAND, Maine — Another threatening message was found in a city school this week, but police said it did not warrant the type of response that forced lockdowns at Lyman Moore Middle School and Portland High School last month.
A message found Wednesday morning on a bathroom stall at Portland High indicated there was a bomb in the school, set to detonate at 11:04 a.m. But part of the message didn't make sense.
