THE LATEST ON THE SITUATION AT NORTHERN MICHIGAN UNIVERSITY.

NMU PRESIDENT LES WONG AND NMU PUBLIC SAFETY DIRECTOR MIKE BATH ADDRESS THE MEDIA.

Northern Michigan University is open today for classes and business as usual.  This after an uneasy day due to a somewhat enigmatic online message threatening the University community with a shooting spree that would rival the shootings on the campus of Virginia Tech in 2007.  NMU President Les Wong said the FBI and other agencies indicated that there is no longer a clear and ongoing threat and that conditions were suitable to reopening the university.

The investigation revealed no evidence that the anonymous blog post originated on campus.  It was discovered that similarly worded messages had been directed at several other U.S. universities, recently and in a previous year.

At a press briefing held on campus this morning, President Wong and NMU Public Safety Director Mike Bath reassured parents of students, the campus community and the public that the decision to re-open was not made lightly and that the investigation is now being led by the FBI and is continuing.
