All clear after bomb threat, evacuation
In the wake of a bomb threat received today at the University of Indianapolis, the following statement was issued by Jeanette DeDiemar, vice president for communications and marketing:
The University of Indianapolis campus was evacuated this afternoon in response to an anonymous bomb threat.
Police conducted a complete search and found no evidence of a bomb or suspicious materials around campus. An all-clear message was issued within an hour, and students, faculty and staff were permitted to re-enter buildings. All evening classes remain canceled.
