California State University, Northridge, plans to remain open in the wake of two anonymous warnings threatening a mass shooting on Wednesday.

It’s finals week, but students say some of their classes were cancelled after a letter was found threatening a mass shooting. Last week, a similar message with a swastika was scrawled on a wall in Sierra Hall where classes are held.

Campus officials said the threats might not be credible. They are working with the Los Angeles Police Department to investigate, the officials said.
