CSUN police investigate mass shooting threat

Police have begun investigating a threat made to CSUN.

CSUN police have begun investigating reports of a mass shooting threat being made against CSUN on Wednesday.

CSUN Chief of Police Anne Glavin stated in a press release that they are aware of the message, “Mass shooting in Sierra Hall 12/12/18,” written on a wall in Sierra Hall, along with similar hate language written last week in the same building.

“I want our community to know that Police Services is investigating, and we have stepped up patrols on campus,” said Glavin in the press release.

CSUN President Dianne Harrison stated in a press release that classes will remain in session and finals will continue as there is no indication of the threat being credible at the moment.

“Please be assured that we are taking every step to ensure the safety of our campus community, including increasing patrols across campus and collaborating with other law enforcement partners,” said Harrison.

Harrison encourages students or staff who are affected by the threat to speak with supervisors or professors about making adjustments.

“We will closely watch the situation and communicate with students and employees should we need to make changes relating to finals and the status of campus,” said Harrison.

The photo was shared on social media and has caused concerns among individuals of the CSUN community, many wishing students to be safe and careful.

The Sundial will continue to update the story as more information is gathered.
