COLLEGE STATION, Texas (KBTX) - An all-clear has been given on the campus of Texas A&M University following a pair of bomb threats on Thursday afternoon.

Evacuations were ordered beginning just after 1 p.m. at the White Creek Apartments following the first threat. Approximately 45 minutes later, a second threat was made to the Nuclear Magnet Resonance Facility, located on Olsen Boulevard.

Around 3 p.m. police issued an all-clear and students will soon be allowed to return to areas of campus that were closed off as police investigated the situation.

A spokesman for Texas A&M University Police tells KBTX they are confident that AI technology was used to make the threats.

An investigation into the source of the hoax continues.

In April, Texas A&M’s Health Science Center was among several colleges across the state that was the target of a swatting hoax.
