Bomb threat at University of St. Thomas triggers an evacuation of 4 buildings

(KARE 11) - ST PAUL, Minn. — Four buildings on the University of St. Thomas (UST) campus in St. Paul are being evacuated following a bomb threat Tuesday morning.

A UST spokesperson confirms the threat, which came in around 7:45 a.m. The decision was made to evacuate staff and students from the Facilities Design Center, John Roach Center, Anderson Student Center and O'Shaughnessy Science Center. All scheduled classes in the affected buildings are canceled until 1 p.m.

No details on the threat were made available.

Tuesday's bomb threat is the latest in a string of threats that have disrupted operations on the UST campus in recent months. The John Roach Center was previously evacuated August 20 after a bomb threat targeting that building, and in April of this year McNeely Hall and two nearby buildings (including a child care center) were evacuated after someone phoned in a bomb threat.

No word yet from St. Paul Police if they believe all these bomb threats are connected, or attributed to the same person.
