Police evacuated a science building on the University of Pittsburgh campus this evening after a bomb threat was found on a wall inside the building.

Pitt police Chief Tim Delaney said police received a call this evening after someone walked into a women's restroom in the Chevron Science Center and found a note saying that a bomb would go off at 8:29 p.m. The message did not say where the bomb would go off, he said.

As a precaution, police swept the building with dogs, and the city bomb and arson squads came to assist.

Chief Delaney said officers did not find anything and the building, located on the corner of Parkman Avenue and University Drive, is scheduled to reopen at 9:30 p.m. He said officers have been assigned to monitor the building for part of the night.
