Suffolk students briefly evacuated for false bomb threat

Suffolk University students had class on Beacon Hill for a few errant minutes Thursday morning as local police investigated a bomb threat that was determined to not be credible.

The threat affected three school buildings: the Donahue building at 41 Temple Street, the Archer building at 20 Derne Street and 20 Somerset Street. Boston police and officers from the Suffolk University police department searched the buildings before finding no danger, according to Greg Gatlin, a spokesperson for the university.

Students were immediately evacuated from the buildings. The threat caused a minor delay in the start of the academic day, Gatlin said.

The buildings were reopened at about 9:15 a.m.
