Two bomb threats at MU on Friday afternoon interrupted the end of the second week of instruction for students and staff. Between 2:57 and 3 p.m., Gannett and Gwynn halls received phoned bomb threats, which were then reported to MU police, said Capt. Scott Richardson. MU police were investigating the source of the calls, Richardson said.

All buildings were determined to be clear of any bombs after being swept by a police dog and physically inspected by police officers. By 4:30 p.m., students, faculty and staff returned inside.
