First Richmond International Airport, then Concourse D of ATL, then buildings near the Georgia state Capitol in Atlanta. Now, another high-profile evacuation this morning at Princeton University due to a bomb threat:
There has been a bomb threat to multiple unspecified campus buildings. Please evacuate the campus and all University offices immediately and go home unless otherwise directed by your supervisor. Public Safety officers and Princeton Police will direct drivers leaving the campus and those without cars will be directed to evacuation sites. You will receive an update later today. Do not return to campus for any reason until advised otherwise.
The evacuation is still underway:
Regular classes are not in session and most students left campus “days or weeks ago,” according to the Princeton Twitter account.
Bomb threat? Or Jägerbomb threat?
Not everyone hit the bar:
Princeton PD tweeted that it is assisting Princeton University police.
The Princeton University Police Department is handling the investigation. The New Jersey State Police tell Action News that they are aware of the situation but are not involved at this point. The New Jersey office of the FBI is also not involved.
