AUSTIN, Texas - Authorities evacuated the buildings on the Saint Edward's University campus in Austin Tuesday morning. A school official says that's after a threatening note was found in a restroom.

Saint Edward's spokeswoman Mischelle Amador says Austin police
are on campus searching the buildings. She says she doesn't have
more information about the contents of the note.

She says Saint Edward's students and staff who already were on
campus were asked to gather around the soccer field, away from the
buildings. Everyone else was asked to stay off campus until noon.

About 5,200 undergraduate and graduate students are enrolled at the Catholic university south of downtown Austin.

The bomb threat there comes a day after a Virginia Tech student killed 32 people and himself in the deadliest shooting rampage in modern U.S. history.
