Southern Oregon University cancels classes following threat

ASHLAND, Ore. (AP) — Southern Oregon University canceled classes Wednesday because of a "potential threat" found in a school facility.

Ashland Police Chief Tighe O'Meara said in a statement that the department is investigating along with campus security.

Schools throughout Oregon have responded to threats since last week's mass shooting at Umpqua Community College in Roseburg.

Rogue Community College in Grants Pass was evacuated Monday because of a bomb threat that turned out to be a hoax.
