School officials said classes at UConn will resume this afternoon.

Classes have resumed on the UConn campus in Storrs, Conn. after determining that a bomb threat to the admissions building this morning was not credible.

 

School officials said a caller made a threat about a bomb. The building was evacuated this morning and a campus alert was issued.

Then, as police investigated, they determined that the threat might have involved a firearm, which led to school officials advising people on campus to shelter in place. 

After sweeping the building, the threat was deemed not to be credible and normal operations resumed.

As emergency crews were investigating, UConn asked faculty, staff and students traveling to campus to stay away.

Police continue to investigate and ask anyone with information about the threat to call UConn police at 860-486-4800.
