MEDIA, Pa. (AP) - Threatening e-mails sent to two Delaware County Community College campuses prompted the school to shut downall five of its locations until at least Monday. Police say college departments at the Exton and Downingtown campuses in Chester County received about a dozen e-mails yesterday threatening "violence against numerous persons." Officials say they will use a search warrant to find the sender,whom they believe may be a student. The investigation is focusingon the Exton campus. The college, which serves about 10-thousand day students, also has campuses in Marple, Sharon Hill andBroomall. A college official says the campuses were closed in part because of the massacre at Virginia Tech, when 33 people died in the deadliest shooting rampage in modern U-S history.
