All clear given at UCLA after bomb threat scare

WESTWOOD, LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- Students were allowed back into their dorm rooms after a bomb threat prompted precautionary evacuations at UCLA Wednesday night.

According to a tweet from UCLA Bruin Alert, the Sunset Canyon Recreation Center was evacuated around 10:15 p.m. Dorms were also evacuated.

Campus police said the threat was called in by an unknown person.

Students were told to head to Drake Stadium until further information was released. Students in other parts of the campus were told to remain indoors unless otherwise instructed.

By midnight, students in two residence buildings were allowed to go back inside. Half an hour later the all-clear was given and students were allowed back inside their dorms.

Police set up road blocks on a few streets surrounding the campus during the investigation.
