Nearly 200 pedestrians have been struck and killed by drivers along Louisville's roadways since 2014.

Jim Patterson Stadium is "safe and clear" as of Sunday afternoon. That's according to a tweet from the University of Louisville. Investigators had responded to the scene after a bomb threat was reported there earlier Sunday afternoon. 


The school says Louisville Metro Police Department's Bomb Detection Unit helped with the response.

Louisville Baseball tweeted just after 3 p.m. that the game had been temporarily suspended. The school’s website shows a game was scheduled for 1 p.m. 

This story has been updated. A previous version of this story incorrectly stated the address of Jim Patterson Stadium.
