Second social media threat under investigation at UA

Threat #2

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (WIAT) – A second social media threat has been confirmed to have been made against students at the University of Alabama.

The latest threat specifies Bryce Lawn near Fraternity row. After making several calls and reaching out to university media relations we received the following statement via email from Shane Dorrill at 11:35pm.

This is not a new post. It is 12 hours old. UAPD continues to aggressively investigate the situation. UA is prepared to respond to any situation that impacts the campus.

Following up on that email WIAT asked if there were any active investigations underway at Bryce Lawn. Dorrill simply replied… “No.”

The University has established a webpage to reassure parents and students and to clarify rumors circulating around campus. You can view that page by clicking here.
