BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - Baton Rouge Community College is under heightened security after a digital note began circulating warning students not to attend school on Oct. 15.

The college issued a news release Wednesday to warn students of the possible threat, which stemmed from a digital image of an ominous note said to have been seen in a campus restroom.

The note warns students not to come to school on Oct. 15, saying “trust me.”

Officials say they have not seen the original note, and that law enforcement does not consider the threat legitimate.

College Spokesman Steve Mitchell says that city police and Baton Rouge Community College police are working closely in their investigation. The college plans to increase security presence on campus, but Mitchell says no activities will be cancelled.
