Bomb Threats Prompt Evacuation Of 3 Pitt Buildings
PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – The University of Pittsburgh received three more bomb threats Monday morning.
Around 9:20 a.m., the Emergency Notification Service alerted students to evacuate three buildings – Barco Law School Building, Holland Hall and Lothrop Hall – after receiving threats.
Pitt received several more threats over the weekend as well.
This came after Vice Provost and Dean of Students Kathy Humphrey sent an e-mail to students on Friday with one clear message: “We will continue to carry on.”
Humphrey commended students for their resilience and urged them to continue to “stand together in the face of this adversity.”
Pitt is offering a reward of up to $50,000 for information leading to the arrest and conviction of anyone responsible for the recent string of bomb scares on campus.
Anyone with information about who is making these threats is urged to contact the University of Pittsburgh Police Department at 412-624-2121 or by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
