According to a release posted on Penn State Live, the university received a bomb threat Saturday night at a "generic" Penn State address.
In the threat, it said that bombs were located in three buildings -- Patterson, Borland and Shields -- and that they would detonate if anyone touched them.
Originally, University Police did not have anyone evacuate from those buildings, but did bring in bomb-sniffing dogs to search the area. At 9:57 a.m., Patterson and Borland Buildings were evacuated. At 11:45 a.m., the release was updated to say that a preliminary search had been conducted and nothing had been found.
As of 2:01 p.m., police dogs were searching Borland Building and had finished the search of the Patterson Building, with nothing found.
