A bomb threat at Youngstown State University caused several law enforcement agencies to investigate.

A YSU alert issued by the school Friday around 9 a.m. said several staff members at the campus received the threat via email. Officials said they found nothing and the campus was clear at about 2:15 p.m.

Students, faculty, and staff were notified of the incident by the campus wide alert system.

“Communications at times like this are very important to make sure everyone knows what’s going on so we don’t have any sort of panic or anything along those lines,” said Ron Cole, YSU Director of Communications.

YSU police, Youngstown police and the FBI determined it was not a credible threat.

Operations at YSU were not interrupted.
