More than 900 students were absent from three Orlando-area schools after authorities say a man posted threats on Twitter to shoot students and put pipe bombs inside the Florida campuses.

FBI officials said they were looking into the threats made against the schools, but didn't think they were credible.

Authorities were searching for the man who they say posted the threats: a 23-year-old transient who has lived in Florida, California, Virginia, and Maryland.
