HOLYOKE, Mass. (WGGB) — State Police say they are questioning one person following a threat made towards a person at Holyoke Community College.

Around 12:45 p.m., the campus was closed and evacuated for the afternoon and classes canceled after a threat was made, according to HCC spokesperson Chris Yurko.

State Police spokesperson Dave Procopio adds that troopers are currently questioning a “young adult male who allegedly made threats of violence earlier today against a family member and members of the college community.”

That man, whose name has not been released, was found at a residence in Springfield Tuesday afternoon and Procopio notes that β€œthe ongoing investigation will determine if and how the suspect will be charged criminally.”

The school’s Facebook page notes that the campus will reopen for classes at 4:00 p.m.

No injuries were reported.
