Morgan State receives bomb threat, campus being searched

Tuesday morning Morgan State became the latest HBCU to receive a bomb threat, coming on the heels of six institutions thst were threatened just yesterday.

The campus has been closed and the campus is being searched.

Here is a portion of the statement released by Morgan State President David Wilson

Since sending out an alert earlier this morning about the bomb threat we received, a few of you have contacted me to inquire as to whether this is real. Unfortunately, and sadly, it is. The campus is being searched building-by-building this morning with our residential halls being searched first. Fortunately, nothing has been discovered within any of our residential facilities. Rawlings Dining Hall and our Student Center are being searched now so that dining services can prepare meals once those facilities are cleared. The sweep of all office and academic buildings will proceed after these initial searches have taken place, and we will issue an update to the campus community as soon as possible.

At this juncture, no individual or group has been identified as the source of this or the other HBCU bomb threats.
