MUSCATINE, Iowa–This morning, Muscatine Community College (MCC) received an email including a threat to the college. Immediately upon receiving the email, college leadership notified police and chose to close the campus to ensure the safety of students and employees.
Notifications were sent out to all employees and MCC students, in addition to emails and website and social media posts.
Everyone is safe, and police are currently on-campus investigating. All buildings have been cleared and locked. Student housing access is also restricted to residents only, and the campus will remain closed for the rest of the day.
This is an ongoing investigation. As updates become available, Muscatine Community College will share them on their website, eicc.edu.
If anyone has any information that may be helpful to the investigation, please contact Lieutenant David O’Connor with the Muscatine Police Department at 563-263-9922 ext. 608 or [email protected].
There is nothing more important to the college leadership team than the well-being of their students and staff. They have the utmost confidence in the systems and partnerships they have in place to provide a safe environment for all.
