The University of Texas at El Paso's campus is considered safe after officials ordered an evacuation due to a bomb threat.
UTEP ordered a campus-wide evacuation at about 2 p.m. Tuesday and canceled evening classes. Students were seen hurrying away from buildings after getting a text message about a bomb threat.
UTEP Police Chief Cliff Walsh said police got a call that the campus had received a threat. He declined to explain what the threat was or say if police had any suspects, citing a pending investigation.
Walsh called the evacuation a "precautionary measure."
Classes are expected to resume Wednesday.
