HAMPDEN SYDNEY, Va. -- The all-clear has been given after two colleges in Virginia were on lockdown for about two hours Saturday after tips about a possible active shooter.
Hampden-Sydney and Bluefield colleges received online threats about an active shooter on their campuses around noon.
As a result, both campuses sheltered in place until the all-clear was given around 2 p.m.
“Local law enforcement investigated the premises where no threat was assessed,” Bluefield College officials posted on Facebook.
There has been no word if the threats were related.
