CUMBERLAND COUNTY, N.J. (CBS) – Cumberland County College was placed on lockdown on Thursday morning due to a nearby incident.
The lockdown went into effect around 10 a.m. after the college’s website posted a hostile intruder alert, but normal activities resumed shortly after 11 a.m.
“The previous alert condition has been resolved. Campus operations have returned to normal. Please resume your normal activity,” the college’s website reads.
The Cumberland County Prosecutor’s Office says the lockdown was issued as a precaution for an incident at Inspira Medical, located next door, which caused the hospital to be placed on lockdown.
Cumberland County Freeholder Joe Derella says the hospital was placed on lockdown for a time after a threat was made against an employee.
Authorities believe they know who made the threat. Derella says no intruder was ever inside the hospital or the college.
The campus is located at 3322 College Drive in Vineland, New Jersey.
There have been no reported injuries.
