BRCC investigating threatening note reportedly found at Mid City campus
BATON ROUGE - Baton Rouge Community College says it is currently investigating a threatening note that was reportedly posted at the BRCC Mid City campus.
The BRCC Police Department said they were provided with a digital image of the note, which was making the rounds on social media Wednesday, and the source is being investigated.
The note reads: “Please Listen, On October 15th, don’t come to school here. Trust me”.
BRCC said they are working closely with the Baton Rouge Police Department, along with other local law enforcement agencies, on the investigation of the note and its source. However, law enforcement has not yet identified the note as a legitimate threat to the Baton Rouge campus at this time. The college says the investigation and heightened security on their campus is merely a precautionary step.
As of Wednesday afternoon, all classes and campus activities are continuing to meet as scheduled.
BRCC assured faculty, staff and students that they are working diligently to provide the most safe and secure environment possible for education pursuits. Anyone with information about the note is urged to contact the BRCCPD immediately at (225) 216-8888 or BRPD at (225) 389-2000.
