THE LATEST UPDATE ON THE NMU THREAT


Northern Michigan University in Marquette was closed down today due to an online threat. According to NMU officials, a tip was received concerning an online message that threatened students, faculty, staff and administrators but it was unclear as to where any incident may occur.  As a result, University officials chose to close down for the day just after 8-30 this morning as a precautionary measure.

Reports say the threat was made in a blog posting that indicated there would be shootings on campus starting at 10-am and the results would be worse than the shootings at Virginia Tech in 2007. In response to the threat, adjacent facilities such as Marquette High School and the YMCA closed for the day as well.

The NorthStar Academy and Polaris Middle School in Marquette also closed early for today.  Marquette General Hospital is also currently open as usual but they are monitoring all entrances until further notice.
