A New York City middle school teacher has barricaded himself in a classroom. The police department bomb squad is on the scene, but officials say there is no indication that an explosive device is at the school. Police believe the teacher is by himself.

Hundreds of students in the Bronx building have been evacuated and are going to other schools for the rest of the day.

The building houses three schools. The teacher is barricaded inside the New Millennium Business Academy Middle School. It's not clear if he is inside his own classroom.

There are no injuries.
