Pennsylvania community college reopens

May 3, 2007
E-mail threats of violence had prompted officials to close the five campuses of Delaware County Community College.

As police watched over the five campuses of Delaware County (Pa.) Community College, most of the 10,100 students returned to classes after being closed several days because of threatening e-mail sent to the school. Backpacks and purses have been banned through the end of the semester next week, and personal belongings must be placed in clear plastic bags. The text of one e-mailed threat, released earlier by police, said in part: "i'm sick of ppl stressing me out at tht school, so i'm jus letting u know in case that i'm going to get 2 weapons from a friend n i'm going to kill everyone at this damn school."

Earlier: Classes at Delaware County (Pa.) Community College are canceled today - for a fourth day - while police try to find the person who issued threatening e-mails that hint of a Virginia Tech-style massacre. The college suspended classes Thursday afternoon at all five of its campuses in Chester and Delaware Counties after receiving about a dozen threatening e-mails. The college has an enrollment of about 10,000 day students.
