Point Loma Nazarene University cancels classes following possible threat

SAN DIEGO (KUSI) – Point Loma Nazarene University cancelled all classes Thursday after receiving information from the FBI of a possible threat to its facilities, university officials announced.

Classes resumed Thursday evening, the university announced.

At about 8:30 a.m. the university announced the decision to cancel all classes at all of the university’s campuses “out of an abundance of caution” after receiving information from the FBI about a possible threat, university officials said in a statement posted on the university’s website.

“All non-supervisory employees are dismissed. All services are closed,” university officials said. “Residential students should return and remain in residence halls until further notice.”

San Diego police Lt. Eric Hays told NBC7 that the only thing the department can disclose is that it was an online threat.

The university’s main campus located just south of the Sunset Cliffs area of San Diego has over 2,000 undergraduates, according to the university’s website. The university has a regional center in the Mission Valley area and a conference center in the Liberty Station area.
