All-clear at UConn after building evacuated due to bomb threat

STORRS, Conn. (WABC) -- Authorities say all is clear at the University of Connecticut after a building was evacuated Monday morning due to a bomb threat, and normal campus operations have resumed.

All those inside the Tasker Building were told to leave following the threat. All others on campus were told to stay in place.

The university said a general threatening comment was made by phone.

Less than an hour later, police determined the threat was not credible.

It is still unclear whether the threat was specific to the Tasker Building or if that is where the call was picked up.

The incident is still under investigation.

All undergraduate applications are reviewed by the admissions staff working in the Tasker Building, university officials say.
