Olmsted County Sheriff Kevin Torgerson shared details Wednesday of a hoax school shooting call that put Lourdes High School on lockdown in Rochester, Minn.

A wave of fake reports of shootings sent several Minnesota schools into lockdown Wednesday, authorities said.

The Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehensions (BCA) said the hoax calls were reported in 16 districts, including schools in Minneapolis, St. Paul and Rosemount.

The calls also were reported in Rochester, Mankato, Austin, St. Cloud, New Ulm, Fairmont, Alexandria, Fergus Falls, Brainerd, Grand Rapids, International Falls, Bemidji and Cloquet. On Wednesday evening, a bomb threat was called into Coffman Memorial Union at the University of Minnesota.
