Louisiana State University Students Return To Dorms After Bomb Threat

Posted: Updated:
BATON ROUGE, Louisiana -

A Louisiana State University spokesman says the thousands of students who live on the Baton Rouge campus will be able to return to their dormitories after bomb-sniffing dogs and police methodically swept residential halls following a threat that sparked a campus-wide evacuation.

LSU spokesman Herb Vincent said officials hope to reopen the campus by Monday night, but they aren't certain if a sweep of all campus buildings will be complete before Tuesday.

Thousands of students, professors and workers were told to leave campus Monday morning after a threat was phoned into 911 about 10:32 a.m.

Authorities conferred with counterparts in Texas, North Dakota and Ohio, where similar threats were received Friday. But officials say they're not sure if the Monday phone call was connected. Police found no explosives at LSU or the other campuses.
