A person connected to an anonymous threat that prompted the closure of San Francisco State University on Tuesday has been detained, university officials said.
University officials said earlier Tuesday that in-person classes were closed for the day due to an “anonymous, non-specific threat.”
All university buildings, including the library, were closed Tuesday morning and students in campus residential buildings were asked to stay inside, SFSU spokesperson Kent Bravo said.
Just before 1 p.m., university officials said SFSU police, with help from other law enforcement agencies, detained the person believed to be responsible for the threat.
While the investigation remains ongoing, university buildings will remain closed for the rest of the day and resume normal operations on Wednesday, but students in residential buildings are clear to leave the residential area Tuesday, SFSU officials said.
