Texas State University resumes after bomb hoax

Posted: Updated:

SAN MARCOS, Texas (AP) - A bomb threat hoax at Texas State University has forced evacuation of a dormitory and detonation of a package as a precaution.

A spokesman for the school in San Marcos says a non-student was detained during Tuesday morning's incident. Jayme Blashcke says the estimated 300 residents of College Inn who evacuated to a recreation center returned to the dorm by 6 a.m. CST Tuesday.

Nobody was hurt.

A TSU police officer had detained a person seen smoking, which is banned on campus. Blashcke says the person's vehicle had what appeared to be a device with an ignition, but Austin police bomb squad members determined it wasn't explosive. X-rays on a second package were inconclusive. That item was detonated.

Campus police didn't immediately release information on the detained person.
