The campus of Southern Technical College in Fort Myers was evacuated Tuesday morning after what police say was a swatting call; another targeted Cape Coral Technical College.

Along with these Southwest Florida colleges, four other campuses elsewhere in South Florida appear to have been targeted: Palm Beach Atlantic University in West Palm Beach, Florida International University in Miami, Indian River State College – Massey Campus, and Fort Pierce City College in Hollywood.

This is a developing story and will be updated as more information becomes available.
