Shortly after 7 p.m. this evening, Thurs., May 1, law enforcement authorities responded to a bomb threat made at a fitness gym in Fallbrook.

After being notified of the threat, officers with the San Diego Sheriff's Dept. evacuated the building and quickly taped off a perimeter around Club Paradise on South Mission Road as well as surrounding driveways to keep the public and spectators at a safe distance while the the incident was being investigated.

on South Mission Road were closed as well as both driveways to the Rite Aid drug store along South Mission Road. Rite Aid was still accessible through its Clemmens Lane entrance.

North County Fire was called to the area to be on standby.

At approximately 8:45 p.m., the Sheriff's Communication Center said a search of the premises had been conducted and no suspicious items were found. Authorities remain on the scene and are actively working the investigation into the threat.

I was in the gym at the time of the evacuation and just want to point out what a great job the manager did. He handled the situation very well to keep people calm yet taking it as a serious threat.

This is Fallbrook, why not......

What makes Fallbrook any different?

Already have gangs, drive by`s, shootings, drugs, carjacks, murders, add bomb threat to the list of life in the friendly barrio.

So my brother in Christ Ray,

You do realize there are white Arians here in the barrio, yes? Well, they're mostly in DeLuz, but you and I both know they're here.

Do YOUR hermanos ever commit crimes? Drive by's, drugs, murders? Or are they just immune from crime because they're white?

Club Paradise is a really nice and friendly home town gym that attempts to please their members.

Glad to hear that the Manager did his job well. . I hope that those who do this kind of nonsense, realize that in the end, they only waste time, money and resources that could be used elsewhere.

Then again, if they were concerned for others, then they wouldn't pull such a silly prank in the first place.
