Texas A&M Police have confirmed that the active shooter threat at Texas A&M University’s Health Science Center was a false alarm.

After receiving a call about an active shooter in a laboratory at the Health Science Center with numerous casualties around 10:30 a.m., Texas A&M University Police and law enforcement from Brazos County reacted promptly.

This comes after a series of other hoax calls made to Baylor University, Collin College Plano Campus, Texas Wesleyan University, Del Mar College in Corpus Christi, and the Galen College of Nursing School in San Antonio earlier in the day.

The police noted that the same individual who made the active shooter report at other Texas universities today was behind these incidents.

The act of swatting is an alarming trend that is becoming more common among young people throughout the nation.

Authorities have warned that these pranks can result in severe consequences for all parties involved and are considered felony offenses.

At present, Riverside Parkway at HSC Parkway is shut down as the authorities continue their inquiry.
