Officials at an upstate New York college say a lockdown sparked by a telephone threat has ended after all buildings were searched and staff and students escorted to safe locations.
    
Utica College in central New York sent messages on social media late Monday morning asking students to shelter in place. The college says everyone was later escorted to Strebel Student Center and Clark Athletic Center, which were declared "safe zones." Police say no shots were fired and no injuries were reported.
    
Late Monday afternoon, officials said faculty and staff were being released from campus and residential students allowed to return to their dorms.
    
The investigation was continuing, with police remaining on campus. Police said there were no arrests and no confirmation of any shooter on campus.
