SEATTLE (Reuters) - A Washington state high school that was the scene of a 2014 school shooting rampage which left five dead has been evacuated after a bomb threat, a school district official said on Wednesday.

The school, Marysville-Pilchuck High School, an hour's drive north of Seattle, was the site of an October shooting that left five students dead. Area police tweeted after Wednesday's evacuation that parents could pick up students at a nearby church.
