STILLWATER, Oklahoma -

Authorities have given the "all-clear" at a transportation terminal on the campus of Oklahoma State University in Stillwater, which was evacuated as they investigated a bomb threat Thursday morning.

According to university officials, a female called an OSU office at 8:45 a.m. and said there is a bomb in the OSU Multimodal facility, a bus terminal just west of the stadium. Officials say they responded within a minute, and began investigating and evacuating the building immediately.

According to a campus safety alert, the public was being asked to stay away from both the Multimodal and Monroe street parking garage.

OSU campus police officers performed an initial sweep and found nothing suspicious. Oklahoma Highway Patrol troopers responded to the scene and performed a second sweep with dogs. They did not find anything suspicious either.  

At about 1 p.m., authorities gave the all-clear at the scene. OSU officials say no arrests have been made at this time. But an investigation is ongoing.

Students are being allowed back into the terminal and the parking garage. Police officers escorted the students into the building as a precaution.

A temporary bus terminal was set up between Hall of Fame and Scott Street. Buses are still running, and parking is open across campus for people with valid parking passes.

Bob Mills SkyNews9 HD was over the scene. Pilot Jim Gardner said that authorities blocked off the entrances to the bus terminal and the parking garage as they investigated the scene. But no major roads were ever shut down.
