Threat leads Auburn to cancel classes

Posted: Updated:

AUBURN, Ala. - Auburn University has canceled classes following what school officials are calling an unsubstantiated threat on campus.

The university made the announcement Wednesday on its website.

Police presence is being increased around the Auburn campus but authorities don't believe the threat is credible.

Social media posts circulated showing what appears to be handwritten threat of a campus "rampage" on Wednesday. A university alert went out after the posts began spreading.

 This comes on the 7th anniversary of the mass shooting at Virginia Tech that killed 32 students and faculty members.
