COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) - The University of Missouri has issued an all clear after an earlier reported bomb threat prompted the evacuation of two buildings.

A statement posted on the university’s website Tuesday night said campus police and administrators were aware of a reported threat in the Student Center, which was evacuated. The statement said the Memorial Union building was also evacuated as a precaution.

The Columbia Daily Tribune reports police reopened the Student Center around 9:30 p.m. after searching it for more than an hour.

An all clear was announced online just before 9:45 p.m. The university says the union building won’t reopen until Wednesday.

MU spokesman Christian Basi tells the newspaper that the threat was made through an anonymous phone call to staff at the Student Center.
