Students and staff at a university at North Carolina University were placed under "protection on site" after the school was threatened with a Black Lives Matter mural painted on campus.
The University of North Carolina, Asheville (UNC Asheville) announced a "bulldog alert" Friday warning people not to visit campus. They stated that the order would stand until further notice.
"During the night, several university offices received an email telling them a direct threat to members of the UNC Asheville community," said a university security alert.
"The email requested that the Black Lives Matter mural on University Heights be painted over on campus."
The university did not provide the details of the threat, saying the campus threat is being investigated by state and local authorities.
"Several law enforcement agencies are working with UNC Asheville campus police to continue the investigation," the facility announced in a later update.
The order ordered students not to come to campus and said that all in-person or virtual classes and extracurricular activities have been canceled.
According to its website, the university has around 3,600 students from 40 states and 21 countries.
