Tyler, Texas (KETK) — After a thorough investigation conducted by officers from UT Tyler Police Department and investigators from UT System Police, it has been determined the threats made to campus over the past few days are not credible.
They appear to have stemmed from a domestic dispute unrelated to the University.
Out of an abundance of caution, enhanced security measures will remain in place throughout Saturday’s activities.
The University gratefully acknowledges the work of the UT Tyler Police and UT System Police, as well as officers from Tyler PD, UT Health Northeast PD, UT Austin PD, UT Arlington PD, UT Dallas PD, UT Houston PD and other law enforcement agencies who quickly responded to ensure the safety of our students, faculty and staff.
