We know that many WNY students go to Utica College so we are passing this along.

A message on the Utica College Facebook page is certainly cause for concern:

“Utica College is currently under a lock down due to a real, credible threat. Everyone on campus is to remain sheltered in place. Please get to a safe place and remain there until you are told the shelter in place direction has been lifted.”

There was another message, too: “Armed uniformed officers will be clearing buildings as soon as possible. Comply with all law enforcement instructions. If you are sheltered in place, you will be evacuated and escorted to a safe location. Please stay where you are until directed by law enforcement.”

Armed police officers are on campus now and are going to evacuate students to a safe location.

Right now there is no other information, but if you have a student there, this is the latest information.
