Atlanta Courthouse Murders - Bomb Threat at Courthouse

Link Police have determined that a bomb threat reported for the Fulton County Courthouse Thursday afternoon is a hoax. The threat led police to start shutting down nearby streets.

Officers also brought bomb-sniffing dogs into the building. There were no reports of any evacuations or other related actions.

The courthouse had closed at 1 p.m. so that the 400 workers there could attend services for Superior Court Judge Rowland Barnes at the Georgia International Convention Center in College Park.

The bomb threat came just six days after a defendant opened fire, killing Barnes and two others at the courthouse.
