BATON ROUGE, La. (WKOW) -- Louisiana State University's main campus is being evacuated following a bomb threat.
LSU police said Monday on their website that they are investigating the threat at the Baton Rouge campus. Students and others were asked to evacuate "as calmly and quickly as possible."
There are 30,000 students, professors and university employees located on the campus.
Officials say state police bomb technicians are on the scene. They say police are talking to their counterparts in states where university bomb threats were reported last week to determine whether there are similarities.
