Police responded to the threat at Bowie State University in Maryland and Howard University in Washington, D.C., where students were advised to shelter-in-place. All classes were switched to virtual for the day. The campuses were searched but no immediate dangers were found.

Four other HBCUs went into lockdown or closed for the day, including Albany State University in Georgia, Bethune-Cookman University in Florida, Southern University and A&M College in Louisiana, and Delaware State University.
