All clear declared on alleged bomb threat – Pullman campus resumes normal operations
The Washington State University Police Department completed sweeps of a number of buildings on the WSU Pullman campus overnight and has reaffirmed that the bomb threat called in late afternoon on August 3 was a hoax.
Late Thursday afternoon (August 3), the Washington State University Police Department received a call from an individual who claimed to have placed several explosive devices on WSU’s Pullman campus. The caller did not provide detail regarding the alleged devices and the threat does not appear to be credible.
Out of an abundance of caution, WSU Police have initiated a sweep of several buildings that could have potentially been involved.
Washington State University Police are working closely with state and federal law enforcement agencies to assist in the on-going investigation.
