TSU building briefly evacuated by bomb threat

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- The one-building downtown Nashville campus of Tennessee State University has been briefly evacuated after a bomb threat.

TSU said on its Facebook and Twitter accounts that the Avon Williams Campus was cleared of students, faculty and staff at about 9 a.m. Tuesday. The all-clear from police officials came about an hour later after the building was searched.

Activities at the main TSU campus in Nashville, where homecoming week is under way, weren't disrupted by the hoax.

A spate of bomb threats has led at least five U.S. universities to evacuate campuses this month.
