AUBURN, AL (WBRC) -

The Haley Center on Auburn's campus has reopened after the building was evacuated due to a bomb threat earlier on Tuesday.

Auburn police searched the building and determined it to be safe, the university's official AU Alert account tweeted at 12:36 p.m. Classes will resume at 2 p.m.

Students were told to evacuate the Haley Center after a threatening message was found inside a restroom. It's the same building where a threatening message was discovered weeks ago.

"Haley Center is being evacuated after a threatening message was discovered in a restroom. Law enforcement is taking all appropriate measures," Auburn's official Twitter account, @AuburnU, tweeted at 10:18 a.m.

AU Alert, Auburn's official emergency notification system, reported the threat on Twitter at 10:16 a.m.

"Bomb threat reported to Haley Center. Bldg being evacuated. Surrounding buildings not affected. Avoid Haley Center until further notice," AU ALERT tweeted.

The school said both state and local law enforcement agencies were taking appropriate measures to respond to the situation.

Photos tweeted by Auburn's student-run broadcast station, Eagle Eye TV, showed a bomb squad on the scene and officials gathered outside of the Haley Center. The campus newspaper, The Auburn Plainsman, also tweeted images of Auburn firefighters patrolling the area around the Haley Center.

This threat comes six days after Auburn canceled classes due to a threatening message that was found on a wall of a restroom inside the Haley Center.

That message stated, "To whom it may concern, on April 16, 2014 I will release a rampage of biblical proportions on this tiny campus. You have been warned."

The message was discovered by a pre-med student about three weeks before April 16. Officials reportedly contacted the student on April 15 asking for more information about the situation. The university also sent out an email the same day to all students, faculty and staff about the note.

Auburn canceled all classes and increased police presence on campus last Wednesday.

Authorities have not yet said if the two threats could be connected.
