About 700 people were evacuated at several facilities at Texas A&M University on Wednesday after a bomb threat forced the closing of part of the school and its athletic complex.
“The investigation is continuing,” spokesman Lane Stephenson told the Los Angeles Times by telephone.
The university in College Station, Texas, issued a Code Maroon emergency warning after receiving the threat about 10:50 a.m. Federal officials have been notified and are aiding in the investigation, the school said.
The threat was written on a wall of a non-academic building on campus, the school said on its website. Stephenson said he could not discuss the contents of the threat.
“Texas A&M authorities continue to investigate a bomb threat at Kyle Field, resulting in the evacuation of the stadium and adjacent facilities,” the school said on its website.
The evacuations were from “Kyle Field, Reed Building, G. Rollie White, Neetum Steed, and the Bright Athletics complex,” the school said. “The facilities will be closed for the remainder of the day.”
Also closed were five parking lots at the stadium, the school said.
