MIDDLETOWN – SUNY Orange officials have alerted the college community of what they believe to be a non-credible threat of a potential shooting today.

Just to be on the safe side, Middletown City Police were present on the campus.

The anonymous phone call came in on a non-valid phone number.

An email sent to the college community Wednesday night said college security personnel and local law enforcement are continuing to investigate the situation.

School officials said they do not believe students, college personnel or visiting community members are in any danger, but to be on the safe side, both the Middletown and Newburgh campuses would be patrolled by police. “Unfortunately, incidents like this reinforce the need for all of us to remain ever vigilant regarding our own safety and the safety of those around us,” the school email read.
