Auburn police swept the campus of Green River Community College on Monday morning after someone made a “general threat” to a faculty member.
The school was in lockdown while police did their work. Officers finished their sweep in the early afternoon and declared the campus clear. Streets in the area were reopened to traffic and a shelter-in-place order was lifted.
Police reported that an unknown person made the threat about 10:15 a.m. The threat suggested there might be a shooting, police said. The person who made the threat walked to a parking lot and was believed to have left campus.
Classes were not in session Monday because of a faculty in-service day, but labs were open.
