AUSTIN, Texas (AP) -- Authorities evacuated buildings Tuesday at St. Edward's University after a threatening note was found, a school official said.
The bomb threat came a day after a Virginia Tech student killed at least 30 people locked inside a classroom building in the deadliest shooting rampage in modern U.S. history.
Police officers had secured the perimeter of the campus and were searching the buildings, university spokeswoman Mischelle Amador.
She declined to say where the note was found and said its contents were "nonspecific."

I just though people might want to know the exact university and not just the state it was in. There's quite a few universities in Texas.
The University of Texas at Austin has ordered an evacuation of all buildings on campus because of a bomb threat.
"Immediately evacuate ALL buildings and get as far away as possible," the university says on its website.
Update at 11:14 a.m. ET: KXAN-TV reports that the university's Director of Communications, Rhonda Weldon, says the university got a call around 8:35 a.m. local time from a male with a middle eastern accent claiming to have placed bombs all over campus.
The caller claimed to be from the Al-Qaeda terrorist organization and that the bombs would go off in 90 minutes, KXAN reports..content.usatoday.com...[/e x]
