After Thursday morning’s lockdown, UCPD located the suspect at an off-campus site at about 2 p.m. and determined there is no longer a threat. 

An hour after UCPD lifted its shelter-in-place order for UC Berkeley following a campuswide threat, campus spokesperson Dan Mogulof held a press conference to offer more details. Mogulof confirmed the suspect issued threats against specific campus members around 7:30 a.m., and campus issued a shelter-in-place order once UCPD deemed the threats credible.

“The threats that UCPD was made aware of this morning were extraordinarily serious and very credible,” Mogulof said at the conference. “When threats like that are received, we’re not going to take any chances when it comes to the safety of the community.”

While Mogulof said campus will return to normal tomorrow, he noted neither campus nor UCPD can offer more information at the time due to “unique and complicated privacy concerns.” Mogulof noted that more information will be released in the coming days.
