MINNEAPOLIS (AP/WCCO) — The University of Minnesota has reopened the Science Teaching and Student Services Building, more than an hour after it was evacuated because of a threat against the facility.

University Police Chief Greg Hestness said the office received an email saying a bomb would go off in the building at a specific time.

The building is on the university’s East Bank campus in Minneapolis.

The building was evacuated and police say the time of the threat has passed. Officials searched the building and have since allowed students and faculty back inside.

    There must be a very hard exam taking place during that bomb threat. Spend more time studying and less time writing bomb threats to stall time.
