Police respond to bomb threats at Connecticut synagogue

BRIDGEPORT, Connecticut (WABC) -- Police in Connecticut investigated two bomb threats at a synagogue in Bridgeport.

Authorities responded to Congregation B'NAI Israel in the 2700 block of Park Ave just after 2 p.m.

The building was evacuated and the police department requested a bomb dog and has since been deemed safe.

The incident comes just ahead of the one-year mark since a man opened fire at a synagogue in Pittsburgh, killing 11 people in one of the deadliest attacks on Jews in U.S. history.
