UK says social media post alleging campus bomb threat is 'unsubstantiated'
LEXINGTON, Ky. - The University of Kentucky is assuring members of the campus community that a social media post alleging a potential bomb threat on campus is “unsubstantiated.”
UK Police are investigating the social media post in question, but classes will proceed as normal on Thursday, according to a release from UK President Eli Capilouto.
Capilouto said the campus would be increasing its safety presence around UK’s Whitehall Classroom Building, the target of the alleged threat, in response to the post.
“Please know the safety of our campus community is our top priority,” said Capilouto.
