Officials believe threats against Texas State coming from ‘same source'

SAN MARCOS, TEXAS - As police are investigating recent threats made against Texas State University, authorities believe the threats are coming from the same source, according to a letter from the university Wednesday.

This comes after Texas State University's LBJ Student Center has been given the "all-clear" Wednesday after another bomb threat evacuated the center for the third time in the past several days.

We have taken steps out of an abundance of caution in response to these threats, including evacuating buildings as necessary. The safety and well-being of our university community is our top priority. We respond to these threats based on the advice of law enforcement officials, and the most current, accurate information available at the time. We will continue to keep our university community updated as information is available.
