EAST LANSING, Mich. (WLNS) — A bomb threat was reported at Fee Hall on Michigan State’s campus Monday afternoon.
Michigan State University Police and Public Safety says the bomb threat was made around 12:30 p.m. and officers quickly evacuated the building.
The threat was made over the phone with ‘specific information,’ MSU police said.
Since then, MSU police say they have determined that this threat was related to other ‘non-credible’ threats that occurred at college campuses around the country.
However, there is still an increased police presence in the area, including K9s who are searching the building, police say.
MSU police detectives are still investigating this incident with state and federal officials.
Officials said they have asked that the building remains closed for the rest of the day so a ‘comprehensive search of the premises’ can be completed.
“We appreciate the assistance provided to our department during this incident by the Michigan State Police, East Lansing Police Department, Ingham County 911, and the FBI. We will provide an update when the area has been cleared and determined to be safe for re-entry,” MSU police said.
