Summary of Tuesday's events:
On Tuesday, at about 12:30 PM, Washington County Sheriff's deputies responded to 17705 NW Springville Rd. located in unincorporated Washington County. This is the location of the PCC Rock Creek campus.
A threatening note was found by a PCC employee in one of the bathrooms on the campus. The note was seized by deputies and later taken to the Washington County Sheriff's Office Forensic Science Lab where it will be analyzed for any evidence.
The note made reference to the shootings last week on the Virginia Tech campus and stated that tomorrow would be the day the threats would be carried out at PCC.
PCC officials decided to evacuate the campus and suspend classes for the rest of the day.
