A bomb was found at a San Jose high school Tuesday morning, prompting a lockdown of the campus and the cancellation of classes on Wednesday, authorities said.

San Jose police officers were called to Oak Grove High School shortly before noon Tuesday after reports of a suspicious package, according to Sgt. Enrique Garcia.
