Bomb Threat

Issued For:
Anschutz Medical Campus

Bomb threat believed to be a hoax

This afternoon (Monday, September 22, 2014), a project manager for the VA Hospital construction site notified the Aurora Police Department of a bomb threat.  There is no reason to believe the Anschutz Medical Campus community is affected by this event at this time.

The University of Colorado Denver Police Department assisted the Aurora Police Department in evaluating the threat. 

The construction company believes the threat is a hoax, however, as a precaution, they have evacuated the construction site for the day.

Should conditions change, you will be promptly notified.  Traffic in and around the area is not effected.

Remember to be observant at all times and report suspicious activity by calling 911 from any  campus phone or 303-724-4444 from your cell phone.

As a result of the CU Police Department continuing investigation, the suspect was arrested at a nearby construction site and is in custody.
