Second gentleman Doug Emhoff evacuated from school after reported bomb threat
He had reportedly spent five minutes in the school's museum before a security agent said to him, "we have to go."
Second gentleman Doug Emhoff was evacuated by Secret Service agents from a school event Tuesday in Washington, D.C., due to an alleged bomb threat, The Associated Press reports.
Emhoff, husband to Vice President Kamala Harris, was at Dunbar High School for a Black History Month event. He had reportedly spent five minutes in the school's museum before a security agent said to him, "we have to go."
Emhoff went into his waiting motorcade outside and left.
Students and staff were told to leave the school as speakers said, "evacuate the building," according to AP News. Students were dismissed for the day while law enforcement sweeps the building.
D.C. Public Schools spokesman Enrique Guiterrez confirmed the bomb threat. It is unclear what the motive behind the threat may be.
The Secret Service did not respond to AP's request for comment.
