HUNTSVILLE, TX (KLTV) -

Police have determined the threat made Wednesday morning against Sam Houston State University was a hoax.

According to the school's Facebook page, University Police met with the unidentified suspect and ruled an earlier threat was not credible.

Around 5:30 a.m. Sam Houston State posted that a "vague" threat made against the college via another social media site.

Parents, students, and faculty were notified of the situation through KatSafe, the university's electronic notification system. "Because we take the safety of our students, faculty and staff seriously, and because we treat all threats seriously, SHSU chose to alert the university community through KatSafe."

SHSU said Wednesday classes will go on as scheduled.

No specific details were released about the nature of the original threat.

University Police have not said whether the suspect is a student or if they will face any criminal charges.

    Sunny and nice for Thanksgiving!!!Sunny and nice for Thanksgiving!!!

    The next few days will be rather chilly with temperatures below normal for this time of year!  A warming trend begins this weekend, but the weather still looks great for anything outdoors.  Temperatures will fall rapidly this evening with lows by Thursday morning ranging from the upper 20s north of I-10 to the low 40s at the coast.  The wind may not calm entirely and that might keep frost from becoming widespread north of I-10.
