SAN MARCOS, Texas (KXAN) - Texas State University has issued an "all clear" in Thursday morning's bomb threat on campus.
At this point, no one is in custody. Police are providing an update to the media shortly.
The Austin police bomb squad headed out to Texas State University in San Marcos to help with a bomb threat reported throughout the campus.
Texas State spokesman Matt Flores said the threat came in around 9:30 a.m. at the admissions building. The university alert to evacuate that building went out shortly after police were notified.
The following text message went out to students and those signed up with the school's text alert system: "EMERGENCY – TXState Alert… Bomb threat at Admissions Building. Avoid area around building. Admissions occupants go to a safe area."
A second text message then followed: "EMERGENCY – TXState Alert… Bomb Threat evac area now includes Tower & San Jacinto. Stay away from the area."
Three buildings have been evacuated, which includes the admissions building and two adjacent dorms. It is unknown if it is a single threat or whether there were three separate threats for each building.
Don Inbody sent a video of the alert via the campus Alertus system, attached to this story. Alertus is a rapid, full-screen alerts broadcasting system that is used to send alerts to all computers in the Texas State network.
Meanwhile, university police are investigating.
Thursday's bomb scare at Texas State comes just more than a month after the University of Texas dealt with a similar situation.
