SAN MARCOS, Texas (KXAN) — Texas State University says a bomb threat forced the school to evacuate the LBJ Student Center for several hours Thursday afternoon.
University police say after making a sweep of the building, they determined there was no danger around 4:15 p.m.
A student at TXSU posted on Twitter around 12:40 p.m. that they were “locked” inside the building but a university spokesperson said they couldn’t address what the picture showed. A few minutes later, the same student tweeted that they were evacuated.
The University Star, the campus newspaper, reports the threat was made to a food service employee. The campus paper also said the walkways surrounding the LBJ Student Center had been blocked off.
