Bomb and Firearm Threat at Princeton University Deemed Not Credible

A bomb and firearm threat that mentioned protests against racism at Princeton University has been deemed not credible, school officials confirmed this morning.

The Princeton University Department of Public Safety conducted an investigation in consultation with other law enforcement agencies after the school received a threat via email Thursday night.

In response to the threat, the public safety department increase campus patrols.

The student sit-in at Nassau Hall ended after 32 hours Thursday. University officials agreed to hold discussions about Woodrow Wilson’s racism and his legacy on campus and whether buildings named after him should be given new names. The school will also consider removing a mural of Wilson from a dining hall. The student group that organized the protest, the Black Justice League, also received several other concessions from school officials, including the promise to create dedicated cultural affinity group spaces at the Carl Fields Center.
