One day after Franklin County and Western Hills high schools had a bomb threat, Kentucky State University officials reported a bomb threat was made early Tuesday morning.

KSU was put on lockdown status and classes have been canceled. Students were asked to attend classes virtually and employees work remotely.

Students were asked to remain in their dorm rooms until all-clear is issued and those on campus are advised to shelter-in-place until further information becomes available.

“Law enforcement officials have completed an investigation of the bomb threat that Kentucky State University received earlier this morning,” the university said in a statement at 8:10 a.m. “University police, local and state law enforcement agencies searched all campus facilities and have issued an all-clear. The shelter-in-place is lifted and it is now safe to return to campus.”
