College officials say that one of the students was threatened by another student Tuesday night, and the student who made the threat was located at an address in Buffalo and is being questioned by Hamburg police, who are leading the investigation.

Campus officials say they have closed the campus for the remainder of the day to allow any staff and students who were on campus to, 'decompress'.

Officials say the campus will return to normal activity on Thursday.
