Morning exams at Johns Hopkins University's Homewood campus have been postponed due to a "non-specific, unverified threat of a bomb," school officials said.

All 9 a.m. exams have been postponed until 10 a.m. as a result. 

Police were called to investigate a bomb threat called into Johns Hopkins University Thursday morning. The caller said a lecture hall would be targeted.
