AUBURN, AL (WAFF) -

Haley Center on the Auburn University Campus is being evacuated after a threatening message was discovered in a bathroom.

According to the university, law enforcement is taking appropriate measures.

Surrounding buildings are not affected.

This is the second time this month a threatening message has disrupted classes on the campus. On April 16, classes were canceled after a threatening message was found on the wall in a bathroom. The message threatened to "unleash a rampage of biblical proportion" on the anniversary of the Virginia Tech massacre.

There is no indication that the two incidents are connected. Auburn Police, as well as the FBI, are aware of the massacre threat incident and continue to investigate.
