Here is the statement from Florida State athletic director Stan Wilcox. Via seminoles.com:

We are deeply saddened by the early morning events on campus. The entire Florida State family and surrounding community are affected. Our university administration has increased security measures and is providing a strong law enforcement presence on and around campus. We have been assured there is no further threat.

Classes have been canceled today, but campus is open. This weekend's athletic events, including those planned for tomorrow, will take place as scheduled.

Following tragic times like we experienced today, athletic events can help in unifying both the student body and community. That is our hope in moving forward with these events.

Our thoughts and prayers are with all those directly affected by this tragedy.

Both the Boston College women's volleyball team (Friday 11/21, 7:00 p.m.) and football team (Saturday 11/22, 3:30 p.m.) are in Tallahassee this weekend for games against the Seminoles.

Our thoughts are with the entire Florida State community and those affected by this senseless tragedy.
