Dallas Baptist University canceled classes and went into a lockdown Tuesday after it received the threat, university officials said.

No one was injured and authorities swept the campus, the university wrote in a message posted to Twitter.

Following an extensive search, no bomb was discovered on campus, university officials said.

The school wrote about 1 p.m. Tuesday it was evacuating the campus immediately due to a threat and “THIS IS NOT A DRILL.”
