The Carolina Inn received a bomb threat last Tuesday, said Randy Young, spokesman for the department of public safety.

Officials were alerted to the threat after someone called the Inn and reported a bomb on the premises, Young said.

The Department of Public Safety, Chapel Hill Police and the K-9 Unit trained in bomb detection answered to the scene. No one was evacuated from the Inn.

Due to the specificity of the threat, Young said law enforcement quickly determined there was no bomb on the premises.

The identity of the caller was unknown at the time, and the incident is still under investigation.
