The Austin Police Department gave the all clear after a bomb threat at the Downtown Austin Community Court and Municipal Court. 

Both courts were evacuated while the bomb squad assessed the situation.

Also on Monday, Texas State University and the University of Texas received a similar bomb threat that was also found to not be credible.

In March, two people died after a suspect began leaving package bombs throughout the city. The suspect killed himself after three weeks of tormenting the city of Austin.
