BROOKVILLE, N.Y. (1010 WINS) -- Friday's graduation at the Long Island University Post Campus in Brookville will have tight security, following the discovery of a threatening letter in a dorm room bathroom on Thursday.

The writer threatened to stalk and shoot people, and blow the roof off of a dorm, because someone messed up the writer's room. The letter said it will be like 9/11 and the Boston bombing all over again.

Nassu County cops said they spoke with people in the dorm in question and they did not find the threat to be credible.

Security officials say graduation is the biggest event of the year on campus and that security was going to be tight anyway.
