On September 13th, a former student from Shoreline Community College who has mental health issues threatened to “blow up the school with dynamite.” The former student left this phone message for the college at 16101 Greenwood Ave.

“Obviously, the college takes such incidents very seriously,” said college spokesman Jim Hills.

In this case, the employee immediately reported receiving the message to campus security personnel, who then immediately notified the Shoreline Police Department and submitted a report. The person leaving the message was a former student known to college officials  and police and has a history of making threatening statements. The details of this incident were reviewed by college officials and police and it was quickly determined that no immediate action was required, Hills said.
