Southern Adventist University on lockdown after threat

Southern Adventist University was under lockdown for two hours today after Collegedale police say the school received a credible threat. The lockdown began at 12:17 p.m. after the suspect was reportedly upset over delayed paperwork. The lockdown included the Adventist elementary, middle and high school across the street. Authorities searched campus buildings and students were instructed to stay away from windows. On Twitter, there were rumors of bomb threats and shots fired. But police say the man was never on campus, no shots were fired and no one was injured. The lockdown was lifted at 2:25 p.m. and at that time police say the suspect was detained at the Collegedale police department, but he had not been arrested.
