LANSING, Mich. — Michigan State Police say that the threat at MSU is over and people can resume normal operations.

They are continuing to investigate the incident and students and staff may see police in and around the building for the remainder of the day.

MSU Police spokesman, Doug Monette told NEWS 10 that they are taking the threat very seriously.

"The appropriate resources are in place," he said. ""So far we have not found any suspicious activities and we have no injured."

The MSU police said that a person reported a bomb threat at or near the Hannah Building around 10:45 a.m. on Friday, that was shortly after the MSU Board of Trustees meeting ended.

MSU Police are asking anyone that saw suspicious activity to report it to 911.

NEWS 10 spoke with MSU Spokesperson, Emily Guerrant, who confirmed a threat caused the Hannah Administration Building on MSU's campus to be evacuated.

She said that President Samuel Stanley and some trustees were part of the group that was evacuated.

She also said that everyone was able to return to the building at 12:40 p.m.

A student at MSU told NEWS 10 that she got the alert of the threat through the MSU Alert System. She received it on her cell phone.

Genna Barner, 19, is a junior at MSU. She said she was not aware of any campus buildings where people had to evacuate. “We’re of course worried,” she said.
