UPDATED (with Video): University of St. Thomas Evacuated After Bomb Threats; No Bombs Found
UPDATE: An HPD officer on the scene told reporters that it was more than likely "a hoax." Video from St. Thomas HPD press conference after the jump.
The University of St. Thomas was evacuated this morning after receiving two bomb threats, but Houston police have not found any bombs.
HPD spokesman John Cannon said the first threat was made around 7:30 a.m., with "an insinuation that a device was going to be found initially in the library of the campus." After the bomb squad arrived on the scene, the campus received another threat, he said.
A bomb-sniffing dog did not pick up any scent in the library. We'll have more soon.
