UTICA – Utica College students and staff have been advised to stay in place after the police received what they believe to be a “real, credible threat” of violence on campus.
According to CNY News, two calls came into police threatening to take “some sort of action” at the school’s Gordon Science Center, and the school was put on lockdown. A message went out on the school’s social media advising everyone to stay in place, and police have been going to each building to escort everyone to a secure location. No injuries have been reported and police have not reported any shots fired.
“Law enforcement continues to investigate the threat,” the school posted on their website. Local, state, and federal law enforcement is on scene. The campus remains in lock down.”
