Finals week at Johns Hopkins had a “non-specific” threat thrown into the mix on Thursday morning.
According to JHU, police received a threat to the university on Thursday morning. The caller said a lecture hall on the Homewood campus would be targeted. It was broadcast on JHU’s alert system as a “non-specific” and “unverified” threat. However, it was menacing enough to lead to an order to “clear the exam rooms.” Authorities later said it was a bomb threat.
Security checked academic buildings, and found nothing. While the person who made the threat succeeded in being vague and caused all sorts of commotion, the tests had to be taken. Morning exams were delayed by an hour to 10 a.m.
