Utica College on lockdown over threat
Utica College in upstate New York is on lockdown after the school "received threats from an individual who stated that he was armed with a weapon," the Utica Police Department said.
While the school called it a "real, credible threat," a law enforcement official told ABC News there is no evidence this was a credible threat.
According to ABC affiliate WUTR-TV in Utica, two phone calls were made threatening "to take some sort of action" at the school's Gordon Science Center.
The school said there are no confirmed shots fired and no reported injuries.
Everyone on campus was asked to shelter in place, the school said, adding that "law enforcement continues to investigate [the] threat."
Armed police officers are on campus and are evacuating buildings and helping students and staff to safe locations, the school added.
There is no suspect in custody, the school said.
The school, located in Utica, New York, is about 50 miles east of Syracuse.
