ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) The University of Texas at Arlington has resumed normal operations after closing for several hours following an apparent bogus call about a gunman.
The school returned to regular operations around 9:30 a.m. Wednesday after an emergency alert advisory indicated the "threat has passed." Further details weren't immediately provided.
UTA spokeswoman Kristin Sullivan says police earlier Wednesday received a call from a woman saying a man with a gun was traveling to the school. Sullivan says no such person was spotted on campus but classes and other summer events were canceled as a precaution.
School officials say normal class schedules resumed at noon Wednesday.
Sullivan says several thousand people typically would be on campus for summer classes, camps and other activities. UTA's spring enrollment was nearly 34,000 students.
