Columbia University Evacuated due to ‘Swatting Prank’

November 07, 2021 – MANHATTAN, New York – Multiple buildings were evacuated at Columbia University after a specific threat to the campus was received.

NYPD could be seen investigating on the Columbia University grounds. Witnesses described seeing people running during the evacuation of the campus.

Carman, Lerner, and Butler Hall were both evacuated after the bomb threats earlier today that was determined to be a “swatting” prank, according to the NYPD.

It is still unknown who is responsible for the fake emergency calls that shut down two buildings at Columbia University Sunday afternoon.

According to Columbia University, emergency notifications went out via text message notifying students of the incident. However it’s being reported that not all students may have received the texts.

According to NYPD, the threats to multiple buildings on the Columbia campus were not credible and the university was reopened.

Two other Ivy League universities also received threats and had to be evacuated. Cornell University received threats of an active shooter today and Yale University received multiple bomb threats on Friday.

According to a local Columbia University paper, Columbia Spectator, threat may have originated from this post.

Authorities have not linked the threats against the Ivy League schools.
