No Credible Evidence Found For Buffalo State Bomb Threat
Another bomb threat occurred on Thursday at a local college, but the evidence that we have regarding the potential threat is concerning.
Buffalo State College canceled their classes and closes the entire campus (including any extracurricular or club meetings) on Thursday to investigate, what appeared to be, a bomb threat.
The bomb threat was made around 10:45 a.m. and it caused a bit of heightened panic. Those who are investigating the threat had said that it was especially unsafe in the academic buildings because that was the reportedly main target when it came to the threat.
Anyone who is a commuter or anyone who was considered a non-essential employees were inform to leave the campus immediately.
Residential students were told to head back to their residence halls, but now they no longer need to stay confined to their dorms.
As of Thursday evening, Buffalo State Police said they’ve found no evidence that proves the threat credible. However, University Police wants to exercise caution, so classes are canceled on March 25. Spring break for Buffalo State students starts March 28, so classes and regular daily activities will resume as normal after spring break on Monday, April 4.
The Campbell Student Union and Dining Services will reopen on March 25, which means meals will no longer be delivered to residential students beginning on Friday, March 25.
Employees will resume daily operations beginning on March 28.
University Police are still looking to resolve the threat and uncover any evidence on the matter. If you have any information about the threat is asked, you can call University Police at (716) 878-6333 or the anonymous tip line at (716) 878-3166.
