The Penn State Police and the FBI are investigating a potential threat on social media and are working to determine its credibility according to a tweet from University Police.

The twitter account that made the threat has since been deleted and whoever was behind it appeared to have gotten into an argument with Penn Sate fans on twitter Wednesday before making the threat against Beaver Stadium, according to our CBS affiliate in Altoona.

This won't keep dedicated fans away from games they added.

There is no immediate danger to the Penn State Community.


This is a developing story and we will update it as we get more information.
