WASHINGTON (AP) - Howard University’s president says officials haven’t seen any suspicious activity or new threats since a threat against the school and its students was posted online.

President Wayne A. I. Frederick said in a statement late Thursday that officials at the historically black school in the nation’s capital are working closely with the FBI and local police on the investigation. He says increased security will continue on campus and at local Metro stations.

Frederick says school officials “strongly denounce the sentiment expressed in the online threat because it speaks against the very freedoms that Howard University and our community stand for.” He says he’s encouraged by the community’s “show of support and solidarity.”

In a statement, the FBI Washington field office said it was aware of the online threat.
