TEMPE, AZ — Some Arizona State University students were evacuated overnight due to reports of a bomb threat.

Students at Memorial Union and Hassayampa Residential Halls received an alert late Monday night about a police situation in the area.

Tempe Police Department officials say they were assisting ASU with evacuating students from the areas.

A portion of Apache Boulevard was also shut down during the incident but has since reopened.

After 1 a.m., ASU Police said the area had been "cleared" and students were allowed to return to the area.

No threat or suspicious items were found, police say.

ASU officials say, "the source of the threats is still under investigation at this time."
