Penn State Police Receive Bomb Threat

A single caller repeatedly contacted Penn State Police to leave non-specific bomb threats. The caller said there are explosive devices in every building on campus, according to a press release.

The caller said there was a suicide bomber at 9th avenue and 7th street, but there is no such intersection on or near the University Park campus.

Police are asking those in the Penn State and State College community to use caution and report any suspicious activity by calling 9-1-1.

There is no other information about the situation available at this time. The PSUTXT alert on the subject was sent at 6:55 p.m. Saturday.
