UE Cancels Game After Threat on Twitter
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.
