Officials with Ball State University and the Burris Lab School in Muncie issued a quick “all clear” shortly after a bomb threat was reported at Burris this morning.
According to the Ball State website, the all clear was issued at about 11:30, less than 30 minutes after school officials received the bomb threat.
The school was not evacuated after officials determined there was no real threat of a bomb. Ball State officials did send out an alert through their website and by text to avoid the area, but that was lifted less than 15 minutes later. Then, the all clear was issued a short time after that.
Ball State and Burris officials are joining with local police in investigating the bomb threat at Burris.
