Bainbridge-- For the most part, things seemed normal Tuesday on the Bainbridge College Campus.
"I haven't seen anything personally. The doors are locked, that's one thing that's different," commented Bainbridge College nursing student Krista Hittson. Brandon Groves, a sophomore at Bainbridge College added, "They have it on lock down pretty much, all the doors are locked up. There's only one entrance on every building and a lot more law enforcement out."
In a "campus alert" on the school's website, the school's president warns a message found in a women's restroom threatens to "shoot up" the campus on Wednesday. "The sheriff's office and also Public Safety and we've got the GBI involved to determine where that written document came from and who wrote it," said Decatur County Sheriff Wiley Griffin.
Plainclothes deputies are helping tighten campus security but classes will continue as normal tomorrow. Griffin explained, "That's a decision made by the president of the College, he's made that decision and we stand by it. It's a good decision."
Some students are taking the alert to heart. "People are paranoid and they're kind of watching their back and nervous," Hittson says. Others say they feel secure at their campus. "The people said they were going to do it. And now they know the law is out here so if they're going to tell you they're going to do it, I doubt they will," says Groves. But Sheriff Griffin says, "You can't take any threat lightly. Just like anything we're putting everything we have behind it to try to find out who made this threat."
The president of the college promises the school is working on getting sound and camera systems for increased security on the campus soon. Investigators encourage anyone with information to contact the Decatur county sheriff office.
