A bomb threat forced Carroll Community College to close early Friday.

Carroll County Sheriff's deputies were called just before noon to the Westminster campus, located on Washington Road.

After being evacuated, officials say the buildings on campus were searched and turned up "no evidence of a credible threat."

The college remained closed for the rest of the day.

Meanwhile, the Sheriff’s Office is still investigating to determine who made the threat.
