North Little Rock Police are investigating a possible “incendiary device” at Shorter College. Roads in the area have been blocked for the investigation.

Police responded at 11:30 a.m. after a call to the school that there was a bomb on campus. Buildings were evacuated for research.

Coincidentally, bomb threats were made yesterday against three Louisiana college campuses – the University of Louisiana in Lafayette, the Morgan City campus of South Louisiana Community College and Nunez Community College in Chalmette. No bomb was found.

No report yet if a device was found at Shorter.

Shorter and two other historically black colleges in Arkansas received bomb threats in February, the first day of Black History Month. Threats have been made against other historically black institutions across the country.

UPDATE: The NLRPD reports no bombs were found and traffic and the school are back to normal.
