COLUMBUS (WCMH) — A bomb threat that caused the evacuation of two libraries on Ohio State University’s campus has been deemed “not credible.”
OSU Emergency Management released a statement on Twitter Saturday night stating the Thompson Library and 18th Avenue Library have been evacuated related to a bomb threat.
Police say they received a call Saturday evening about the threat; buildings were emptied as a precautionary measure.
Officials swept the building with K9 units as the call was under investigation.
About an hour later, OSU Emergency Management said that after the sweep and investigation, the threat was deemed not credible. The libraries are set to reopen Sunday morning.
