Auburn offers $10K reward after 2 campus threats

— AUBURN, Ala. (AP) — Auburn University and police are offering a $10,000 reward following a pair of threats of campus violence.

A statement from the school says the FBI is investigating, and the reward is for information leading to the identification and arrest of whomever is responsible for the threats.

The reward was announced after a bomb threat forced the evacuation of the Haley Center on Tuesday. No explosives were found.

The entire campus shut down for a full day a week ago after a threat scrawled in a campus bathroom prompted safety concerns.
