Threat prompts early dismissal at College of New Rochelle

Posted: Updated:
NEW YORK (MYFOXNY) -

Officials at the College of New Rochelle dismissed classes early at the New Rochelle campus on Friday after a student made threats over the phone, a law enforcement source told Fox 5 News.

Police have flooded the campus looking for the student, authorities said.

The 34-year-old graduate student had a problem with his tuition bill and threatened to "Columbine" the school if the issue wasn't resolved, a source said.

The private college enrolls about 4,000 students. In addition to its main campus in Westchester County, the college has locations in Manhattan, Brooklyn, and the Bronx.

A police source initially called this a "lockdown" but that was later clarified to mean that the college ended classes early.
