A Saturday morning bomb threat call from a person claiming to be ISIS was ruled as a  prank, Hooters restaurant employees said.

The call was made to a Hooters located on 4411 S Cleveland Avenue before the restaurant opened.

Fort Myers Police responded to the scene, but after a lengthy investigation, the threat was determined to be a prank.

The manager of the restaurant tells FOX 4 that the caller made a second call about a possible threat.

Police are now tracing the number back to the caller.

This is an ongoing investigation.
