ARLINGTON, VA (WWBT) - One person was arrested after an Arlington university was evacuated due to a bomb threat, police told NBC affiliate WRC.

The public was told to evacuate Marymount University early Sunday morning.

K-9 units and police swept the scene and did not find a bomb. An all-clear has been given, and the school has since re-opened.

The threat was made over social media, school officials said. Arlington and campus police are investigating the threat.

School officials said there were fewer students on campus due to the school being on spring break.

Anyone on campus at the time was directed to a nearby park.
