Evacuation ended after threat at Carnegie Mellon

Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh has lifted an evacuation of three buildings after an unspecified security threat.

Campus spokesman Ken Walters says the school received a phoned-in threat about noon Friday but reopened the buildings about 2:30 p.m.

Walters didn't know that the threat was. Police searched the buildings, but didn't find anything threatening.

The school alerted students to leave using a text messaging system that sends warnings to cell phones.
