Buildings at Arapahoe Community College were evacuated Tuesday evening because of "threats against the school."

An ACC spokeswoman said later that a man had been arrested off campus in connection with the threats. She said he was not an ACC student.

School officials and security personnel canvassed the campus at 7 p.m., telling everyone they needed to evacuate immediately. A woman whose daughter was in the pool for swimming lessons said parents were told to evacuate as quickly as possible without taking time to let the kids change.

Information on the nature of the threats or how they were delivered was not immediately available.
