UE Cancels Game After Threat on Twitter

(University of Evansville

University of Evansville decided to cancel a baseball game after a threat via Twitter.

The threat was made at about 11:30 this morning. The tweet read:

“We can’t get any type of mental health help in this damn town. I bet they’d wanna help us if we shoot up a @UEAthletics game tho”

At about 4;45, the university tweeted a warning to students that said:

“Twitter feed indicated potential threat at athletic event. UE working with EPD. Be advised and exercise caution.”

The account that posted the threat against UE posted a threat against the Evansville Police today as well, saying:

“Can’t get evaluated for mental health in evansville Indiana until we shoot up @EvansvillePD apparently”

Evansville will attempt to make the game up with Austin Peavy with an April 24 doubleheader.
