HAMPTON, Va. – Thomas Nelson Community College Police determined Thursday that there was “no imminent threat” after being alerted to a threat that was written on a wall at its Hampton campus earlier this week.

Authorities were made aware of the threat at 8 p.m. Tuesday. Officials said the threat included a message intending to commit a shooting.

Out of caution, campus police, along with the Hampton Police Division and Virginia State Police, provided an increased police presence on the campus.

School officials are encouraging anyone who has seen something to say something and report suspicious activity to campus police or call 911.

TNCC’s MAXIENT Report an Incident button can be found on the school’s website at the bottom of each page. It allows confidential reporting of any incident and affords urgent attention.
