No bomb found at Texas A&M
University issues Code Maroon after bomb threat
Authorities said they didn't find a bomb at Texas A&M University after officials issued a Code Maroon Wednesday in response to a bomb threat.
The campus Code Maroon alert system said there was a bomb threat investigation at Kyle Field at 12:25 p.m.
Stadium and adjacent buildings were closed for the remainder of the day, officials said. The evacuated buildings included Read, GRW, Zone, W Kyle, Bright Athletics and Netum Steed. University Officials said normal occupancy and activities will resume at 6 a.m. on Thursday.
According to officials, the threat was written on a wall of a non-academic campus facility.
Since only a portion of the campus was affected, students walked around Texas A&M and attended classes shortly after the alert. But some were nervous.
"It's scary to get the text. I wish the whole campus was evacuated," a student said.
Kyle Field seats nearly 83,000.
