On Thursday, Sept. 1, 2016, at 5:11 p.m. EDT, FOX59 News reported about a watchdog alert pertaining to a bomb threat that was issued for the University of Indianapolis. The alert was issued after the academic institution posted a tweet using its official Twitter site.
The tweet contained the likelihood of the presence of a bomb inside the university premises, raising apprehensions about the same. Consequently, the entire university was placed on a high alert, and evacuation of all the campus buildings and suspension of the evening classes were ordered immediately.
The tweet clearly mentioned that the investigation was being carried out by campus officials, in conjunction with the police department and the bomb disposal squad, who were also assisting the people in the evacuation process.
However, just before 5:00 p.m., the university issued an “all clear” signal for employees to re-enter the campus premises and buildings. Even though, the initial instructions to cancel the evening classes remained upheld.
This is an ongoing story as the investigation is under way. Guardian Liberty Voice will provide updates as they become available.
