Editor's note: This article has been revised to reflect the following correction, which will appear in Tuesday's print edition. The male graduate student who wore a mask to the old biology building Friday morning, prompting Georgia Southern University police to close that building and two connected ones in response to what they termed a "suspicious person" who presented a "credible threat," could still face the possibility of criminal charges.
