(WJLA) - George Mason University has resumed normal operations on its Prince William County campus after a bomb threat Thursday morning. 

Discovery, Occoquan and Bull Run halls were evacuated as police investigated the threat. Shuttles between the university's Fairfax and Prince William campuses were suspended and students who live in Beacon Hall were instructed to stay inside. 

High school students taking classes at the Prince William campus at the Governor's School at Innovation Park were released to their parents or transported back to their normal high schools. Others on campus sheltered inside the Freedom Aquatic and Fitness center. 

The bomb threat was the second one this month for George Mason, which evacuated its arts and design building last week following the discovery of a written bomb threat.
