A note was found in a University Hall Mens bathroom at approx 12:40pm, second floor, that states "Start shooting at 1:15 be ready. Jihad". It is still possible that this is a hoax but proper precautions should be taken.
At approximately 1130pm, 09-17-14, an ISU student reports that while on the ISU blog of the "Yik Yak" social media app on her cell phone, she saw an anonymous message that read "I wonder if this school shooting is going to go as planned tomorrow". The reporting student replied "That's not funny man I should report this!" Within 90 seconds the post was taken down.
It is quite possible this information may be a hoax. There has been no corroborating information received to support this.
It is the procedure of the ISU Police Department however to share any information where there may be a threat to the campus community. All local law enforcement agencies have been advised of this information.
Additional police officers will be in the area of University Hall and campus. Report any suspicious activity to 812 237 5555 or 911
Particularly on Thursday, 9-18-14, please report any suspicious activity to the ISU Police Department at 812 237 5555 or call 911.
