Utah State reopens ROTC building after threat

Jan 19 2011 - 2:05pm

LOGAN -- The ROTC building at Utah State University has reopened after being closed for two days following a message threatening armed violence.

The Herald Journal of Logan reports the building opened Wednesday.

University spokesman John DeVilbiss says a behavioral intervention team of police officers and counselors met with a student accused of making the threat.

DeVilbiss wouldn't specify the threat, but says it was enough to prompt university action.

The newspaper says no charges will be filed.

The incident came on the first day of Utah State's spring semester.

DeVilbiss says officials acted quickly after the Jan. 8 shooting in Tucson that left six dead and 13 wounded, including Democratic Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords.
