CHICAGO (AP) — The latest on the aftermath of the shooting of a black teenager by a white Chicago police officer and an online threat that prompted the University of Chicago to cancel classes for a day (all times local):

1 a.m.

The University of Chicago is set to reopen a day after a 21-year-old man was charged with making an online threat that 16 white men on campus would be killed.

The posting suggested the killings would be in retaliation for the fatal shooting of a black teenager by a white Chicago police officer.

The campus is set to reopen Tuesday.

Security experts say the university may have felt it had no choice to shut down for a day.

The city has been on tenterhooks amid protests that followed last week’s release of video showing the officer shooting the teen 16 times. Michael Fagel teaches emergency management at several universities, including in Illinois. He says that may have helped force the university’s hand.
