Cornell University Police received a call of bombs being placed in Law School, Goldwin Smith, Upson Hall and Kennedy Hall at 2:12 p.m.

Update, 5:06 p.m. Dec. 5: There is no ongoing threat to the campus community after a reported armed robbery in a dormitory room in Terrace 3.

The incident was determined to be a targeted crime and not a random incident, according to an updated alert that was sent to the campus community an hour and a half after the initial alert. The description of the suspect has been updated from a black male wearing a light magenta jumpsuit and a black beanie to a black male wearing a red hoodie, red sweatpants and a black beanie. The other suspect is still described as a black male in his early 20s wearing green Uggs and black or gray jeans with a tattoo of a cross on the right arm.

The Ithaca College Office of Public Safety and Emergency Management conducted a thorough search of the area of the Circles Apartments, where the suspects reportedly fled after the reported incident.
