A bomb threat made early Friday (August 26) forced students at Howard University to evacuate two residence halls for the second time during the first week of fall semester classes.

According to NBC Washington, D.C. investigators checked out the threat and found nothing. A university spokesperson said police may know where the call originated.

“For the second time in 48 hours, students have had to evacuate residence halls during the late hours of a school night,” Howard University President Wayne A. I. Frederick wrote in a letter to students, noting this was the eighth bomb threat to the university in 2022. “People who love and care about them, parents, university employees, alumni, and so many others, have had to wrestle with anxiety about the veracity of another terroristic act.”
