Newtown, Conn. church located near where the Sandy Hook elementary school massacre took place was evacuated on Sunday morning after a bomb threat scare, The Huffington Post reports.

St. Rose Lima Church, the reported Roman Catholic church home to the shooter Adam Lanza, his mother and eight of the 20 children who perished in the Sandy Hook tragedy, evacuated its congregation during a worship service memorializing the massacre just days before.

Armed police and SWAT team officers searched the church before giving the all clear at 1:15pm on Sunday afternoon.

It is not known if the threat was real or just a hoax.  No other official police details from the evacuation have emerged as of yet.
