A&M Continues Investigation of Kyle Field Bomb ThreatFeatured Stories, News Thursday, February 21st, 2013
Business returned to normal Thursday around Texas A&M athletic facilities affected by Wednesday’s bomb threat.
University Police Lt. Allan Baron says someone used chalk to write the phrase “There is a bomb in Kyle” in large letters on a wall inside a non-academic building that is not being identified.
That led to an evacuation of employees and visitors inside offices at Kyle Field. It expanded to the Zone Club, Netum Steed, and the Bright complex. A handful of parking lots were also closed.
In all, 700 employees and students were affected. Some of those displaced relocated to the Memorial Student Center.
Federal agents and bomb dogs were brought in to inspect the affected areas. Wednesday evening the all clear was given and no bombs were found.
UPD was notified Wednesday at 10:50 a.m., the evacuation at Kyle Field began at 11:35, and a Code Maroon alert was issued at 12:25. Baron says the timing of those events will be part of the department’s after action review.
