MSU returns to normal operations

Mississippi State University has returned to normal operations, as MSU Police continue to investigate a Wednesday [June 28] bomb threat.

The affected buildings and the surrounding area have been searched by police, who were on the scene within two minutes of receiving the threat by phone call just after 3:30 p.m.

Bomb-sensing dogs also were dispatched immediately, and nothing suspicious was found.

Mitchell Memorial Library will re-open for normal operations Thursday morning. All other affected buildings have reopened.

"Safety is our first priority, and we always will err on the side of caution," said MSU Vice President of Student Affairs Regina Hyatt, who also serves as incident commander for the university's Crisis Action Team.
