STANFORD – The Stanford University Department of Public Safety responded to a threat of a shooting Friday afternoon, but have not found the threat to be credible as of yet.

At 12:40 p.m., dispatch in Palo Alto received a call from a male stating that he was at the entrance of the university and intended to commit a shooting.

An alert went out to students, faculty, residents and staff, who were asked to call 911 if they saw anything suspicious.

At 3:14 p.m., police said they had investigated several areas on campus and did not find any information that lent credibility to the threat.
