Parts of Texas A&M evacuated over bomb threat

Kyle Field and adjacent buildings will be closed for the rest of the day, the university said.

Texas A&M University's Kyle Field and nearby buildings were evacuated Wednesday while authorities investigated a bomb threat.

The threat was written on the wall of a non-academic facility on campus, according to the university's emergency information website, and it was reported to authorities at 10:50 a.m. local time.

The university issued a "Code Maroon" alert to notify students and faculty about the evacuations.

The evacuated stadium and buildings will be closed for the rest of the day. Classes and activities on areas of the campus not affected by the evacuations will go on as scheduled, the university said.
