An “all clear” has been issued for Jackson State after faculty, staff, and students were evacuated from the campus due to a bomb threat.
The university alerted those who may be on the campus grounds of the phoned-in threat on Tuesday afternoon.
The Jackson Police Department Bomb Squad, Jackson Fire Department, and JSU Department of Public Safety then conducted an investigation of the campus, giving the “all clear” notice shortly after.
Employees are being asked to return to their respective buildings at this time. The campus will resume normal operations on Wednesday, May 17.
