University of Missouri police on Wednesday arrested a person who allegedly threatened on social media to harm students. ;

The suspect “was not located on or near the MU campus at the time of the threat,” police added. ;

The university plans to resume a regular schedule “with increased security,” Mizzou Chancellor R. Bowen Loftin wrote on Twitter. ;

Multiple threatening messages, ;across various platforms, emerged Tuesday evening, and it’s currently unclear whether one person was behind them all. However, Loftin tweeted Wednesday morning that the suspect in custody was believed to have used several different accounts. ; ;

Someone called in a threat to Mizzou’s ;Black Culture Center ;while some students met with members of the Missouri Legislative Black Caucus, ;ABC 17 News reported. The building was put on lockdown.

Several threatening messages were posted on Yik Yak, an anonymous social media messaging app. One ;warned people not to go to campus on Wednesday. Another read that the writer planned to ;”shoot every black person ;I see.” ;

Racial tensions have been simmering on Mizzou’s campus for months and intensified over the weekend, when at least 30 black members of the football team decided to bow out of team activities until the school’s president stepped down. ;

On Monday, ;President Tim Wolfe ;resigned and Loftin announced he would step down at the end of the year.
