FBI: Lone juvenile responsible for bomb threats at HBCU's in NC, other states

Public Domain

A single person is responsible for a large number of the bomb threats called in this spring at historically black colleges and universities.

FBI Director Christopher Wray identified the person as a juvenile in testimony on Capitol Hill Tuesday morning.

He said federal investigators are now working with state prosecutors to bring charges against the suspect.

Several HBCU's faced bomb threats throughout the spring, including schools in North Carolina.
