University building evacuated after powder thrown in air

University building evacuated after powder thrown in air”

The suspect is not believed to be a student in the class where the powder was thrown, according to authorities. "I'm taking my talents elsewhere".

Someone reportedly wearing a James jersey from when he was with the Miami Heat snuck into a classroom, stood up and tossed some powder in the air.

"This guy went up to the front of the class and said, 'Excuse me, I have an announcement to make". Police are now searching for a male suspect, who is 6-foot-2 and wearing a LeBron James Miami Heat jersey, as well as an an additional Asian male suspect wearing a blue shirt with two backpacks.

In his early years as an National Basketball Association player, James was known for throwing chalk powder in the air toward the crowd before each game.

Before NBA games, LeBron used to like to chalk up his hands and throw it up in the air before the opening tip. The student was trying to replicate this in their prank.

Police later identified a second "subject of concern".

"We had an individual throw powder in one of the classrooms".

In a video update posted to the Police Department's Twitter, Chief Richard Beary said the incident appeared to begin as a stunt, but officials were forced to treat it as an emergency.

"We think it was going to be some type of stunt, like the LeBron James stunt, but unfortunately, with the current threat situation the way it is, our firefighters have treated it as a hazmat situation", he said.
By 12:30 p.m., the campus was considered safe though students and staff members were still told to avoid the area due to what was later deemed as an anthrax scare.

UCF police said there was no threat to the campus.
