Texas A&M Offers New Explanation On Kyle Field Bomb Threat

Kyle Field, home of the Texas A&M football team.

Kyle Field, home of the Texas A&M football field, was evacuated this Thursday after a bomb threat was received. 

Fortunately, everyone is safe. Evacuations were made quickly and authorities were at the scene to investigate the threat. 

Texas A&M has offered an explanation of what took place at Kyle Field this Thursday afternoon, via Saturday Down South:

An anonymous call was received through Texas A&M University Technology Services Help Desk Central that made reference to the stadium. University Police was immediately notified. Evacuation procedures were initiated for the stadium and the adjoining Bright Football Complex as a precaution. A Code Maroon message was issued at 1:25 p.m. notifying the campus community of the evacuations and asking everyone to avoid the area. An Incident Command Post was established nearby where University Police managed the incoming response and search of the facilities. Members of the College Station Bomb Unit, Texas Department of Public Safety, and the Federal Bureau of Investigation assisted University Police officers in conducting the searches. Three University Police K-9s that specialize in explosive detection were also involved in the searches. The facilities were cleared by law enforcement at 3:45 p.m. and a Code Maroon was issued notifying the campus community. As this is an active investigation, no additional information can be released at this time.

The Texas A&M football team was reportedly scheduled to have practice, but the bomb threat evacuation has caused a change in plans. 

The Aggies, meanwhile, get a bye this weekend.
