New York's Utica College still on lockdown after threats

Utica police issued a statement about 3:15pm Monday afternoon saying that they were continuing to work with multiple police agencies to search campus buildings, room by room, and move students to a safe place.

Utica College received two phone calls to the Gordon Science center on Monday at about 11am that threatened to 'take some sort of action'.

The school has been sending out tweets to keep students and staff up to date on the status of the threat.

The calls were from an individual who stated he was armed with a weapon, according to the City of Utica's Police Department.

The campus in upstate NY, located about 52 miles east of Syracuse, was placed on a "shelter in place" order just before 12 p.m. until further information was provided.

'There are armed police officers on campus. Residential students will be escorted back to their residence halls by law enforcement, and must remain there until the lockdown has been lifted.

The newspaper also tweeted a photo of students sheltered in place hiding under tables. There have been no reports of any shots fired, injuries, or any suspects in custody. Comply with all law enforcement instructions. Please stay where you are until directed by law enforcement.
