RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) -

Bomb threats were called in to four Richmond high schools on Friday, according to school officials.

Someone called Richmond Police dispatch and made a threat against George Wythe, John Marshall, Huguenot and Armstrong high schools, according to officials.

School officials now say George Wythe High School was the only school evacuated. NBC12 crews saw students at the school returning to their classrooms around noon.

John Marshall, Huguenot and Armstrong high schools were placed on a Code Red, which meant movement was restricted in the building. The all clear has since been issued at the school, officials said. A Richmond Public Schools spokesperson previously indicated Armstrong and John Marshall were also evacuated.

The only Richmond public high school not threatened Friday was Thomas Jefferson High School, though there was a bomb threat called in there earlier this week.
