Earlier this morning, a bomb threat at Bowie State University prompted school officials to close the campus and issue a shelter in place order for residents Monday. The school officials said that the threat indicated explosives were planted in one of their academic buildings on campus.
The campus has been closed and classes and university offices will operate virtually while the investigation continues. No injuries have been reported. Penn Line trains are bypassing the Bowie Station at this time.
The bomb threat at Bowie State was once of several threats reported at historically black colleges and universities across the country Monday. Threats were also reported at Howard University, Albany State University, Bethune-Cookman University and Southern University Law Center.
