FREDONIA- Several students reacted to a delay while standing outside of the Thompson Hall building on the college campus as numerous  bomb sniffing dogs from the Chautauqua County Sheriff’s Office investigated a bomb threat Tuesday. 

“We were transitioning between classes and we were sort of confused as to why so many people were out there,” said one student.
“Some one said there was a carbon monoxide alert,” added another student. “I think SUNY Fredonia did a great job.”
“Hopefully it’s somebody just messing around,” said one student who had yet to start his day.
The Sheriff’s Office conducted a thorough search of Thompson Hall with several agencies assisting, including the ATF.
University officials tweeted that the threat was unfounded. Classes will resume in Thompson Hall at 5:00 pm.
