Mizzou students feel safer knowing threat is gone

COLUMBIA, Mo. (KMOV.com) -

Students at the University of Missouri say they are feeling safer today after a night of unrest. 

Tuesday night, social media was buzzing with racially motivated threats against students at Mizzou. By early morning, police had 19-year-old Hunter Park in custody.  

"I feel safe. I feel fine. There were a lot of things happening last night," says Freshman Sam Kissuu.

The university says it investigated a number of reports and took every one of those seriously. Officials said there is no immediate threat to campus and are asking students not to spread rumors. 

Students say there has been a lot of tension on campus for some time now, and all they want is for things to get back to normal. 

"I think it's just important that I attend my classes. That's what I came here for. Whatever happens, happens," says Kissuu. 

Meanwhile, university professor Dr. Dale Brigham offered his resignation after challenging students to show up for class despite possible threats. A university spokeswoman told News 4, as of now, Brigham is still employed by the university.
