MALIBU—A patron at a football game, that was being held at the Los Angeles Coliseum, found a threatening note that prompted heightened security at Pepperdine University. 

The note read that there was going to be a potential shooting on Sunday, November 27, and mentioned four institutions including Pepperdine University. 

The school currently does not perceive the note as a high risk but will proceed with an abundance of caution. Pepperdine’s faculty is asking students and staff to remain on high alert. They also want those on campus to be aware that they have placed a number of additional security measures throughout the campus. 

A Pepperdine University staff member told Canyon News that they had found a bullet hole in a glass window around the time the note was discovered by the LAPD. It is currently unknown if the two incidents are related.
