MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Sighs of relief in Brooklyn Center Sunday morning after a bomb threat called into a venue where a prom and two weddings were taking place turned out to be nothing.

Just to be safe, police evacuated the Earle Brown Heritage Center at about 9:15 p.m. Saturday night while a thorough sweep of the facility was made. Armstrong High School was holding their prom in the building, which was supposed to go until 11:30 p.m.

Instead the kids were evacuated and only got about an hour of their prom.

The caller allegedly told police that there was an explosive device planted somewhere in the Center, however a team of bomb-sniffing dogs failed to find anything suspicious.

Police are now looking to tie the dangerous prank to someone at the prom or one of the two weddings.
