HOUSTON - A threat against students, faculty and employees at the Lone Star College campus in Cypress has law officers out in force.

The officers sent a bomb unit to the campus after someone wrote bomb threats in two restrooms. They claimed a bombing would take place on Thursday.

The captain of the campus police department emailed an alert to students on Wednesday afternoon.

Officials decided to keep the campus open for now.

"I think they should leave that open until the search is done. But I think they should also be open to the possibility of having to close it for the safety of the students," said student Stephanie Rodriguez.

The threats were found in two female restrooms, one written on a plastic door bin and the other on a piece of paper. Both threats say there will be a bomb at LSC-CyFair.

The threat on paper adds "No one is safe :)"

This is the same campus where a 20-year-old Lone Star student attacked 14 people in April. He went from building to building stabbing his victims in the face and neck.

Campus police have made a concerted effort to step up their presence. Before they brought in Harris County's bomb unit, they did a search of all campus buildings themselves.

"If something did go down, that we would be hopefully notified as soon as possible and evacuated, hide, or whatever we need to do," said Alex Bailey, student.
