Authorities working to identify caller after bomb threat reported at Yale University
New Haven police gave the all-clear after a bomb threat was reported at Yale University Friday afternoon.
New Haven Police say just before 2 p.m. Friday, they received a call on their nonemergency number saying bombs were placed inside seven buildings on Yale's campus.
The streets in the area were immediately shut down and several hundred students were evacuated in the buildings identified by the caller.
Officials called in extra resources, like Connecticut State Police and the FBI, to assist and clear out buildings with the help of bomb sniffing dogs.
The chief of police at Yale University says the caller was male and said he had planted “multiple bombs at multiple locations.”
Officials say they are working with authorities to determine the identity of the caller.
