Florida State police are calling a bomb threat made to the engineering school a hoax.
It all happened this afternoon and everyone from the building was evacuated.
Sometime this afternoon, several law enforcement agencies went door-to-door in the FAMU-FSU College of Engineering asking people to leave. Police say a man called in a threat to cause mass violence with weapons.
Students and faculty were evacuated. The building was closed as law enforcement searched the area. Later, police told us it was a false alarm, what they call swatting, which is when someone calls in a false threat hoping to cause a nuisance.
Classes for today were cancelled.
One student told us he was in class and two people ran in saying to get out. He says everyone was calm as they exited the class.
Another student says he showed up and saw officers outside with guns stopping people from entering.
Around 3:00 pm the scene was cleared and reopened but classes were still cancelled.
