VALLEY GLEN (CBSLA.com) —  The campus of Los Angeles Valley College in Valley Glen was evacuated Wednesday after officials said “serious” threats were received.

Officials gave the all-clear around 4 p.m. but evening classes remain canceled.

KCAL9’s Jennifer Kastner said the threats were serious enough that the bomb squad called in a bomb-detecting robot.

The school tweeted out around 3 p.m. that they received several “serious” threats. They called for an immediate evacuation out of safety concerns.

The Sheriff’s Department told Kasnter there was also a report of a suspicious package found at a construction zone. The suspicious package turned out to be a backpack and pipe-looking object, reported Kastner.

Authorities on campus urged students and faculty to leave “immediately and calmly.”

One student told Kastner there was a mixture of emotions among students including fear, panic, fright and some were even laughing.
