PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — Officials evacuated Rogue Community College in southern Oregon because of a bomb threat.

Though the Josephine County Sheriff’s Office believes the threat was directed at the Grants Pass campus, two other campuses were also cleared Monday morning as a precaution.

County emergency manager Jenny Hall said the search for a suspicious device was continuing Monday afternoon.

Classes were canceled for the day.

Multiple Oregon schools have responded to threats since Thursday’s deadly mass shooting at Umpqua Community College in Roseburg.
