The Hamilton County Sheriff’s Department told Fox News Tuesday that they deemed a bomb threat made Thursday night for the Ruoff Home Mortgage Music Center a “credible danger,” but refused to release any other details about the threat while the investigation was underway. (RELATED: Country Band Rascal Flatts Stops Indiana Concert Over ‘Security Issues’)

The remarks came after the group made headlines last week when fans were told the evacuate the building due to a “security issue.”

“Due to a security concern at the show last night, standard procedures were quickly executed and everyone was able to safely leave the building,” a post on the band’s Twitter account read. “The safety of our fans, band and crew is always the top priority for us, so we are so thankful for everyone who jumped into action and for your understanding. We will be back soon,” a follow-up post read.

Concertgoers told the Associated Press that the group didn’t come back out for an encore during their show last Thursday.

A message over the loud-speaker told the fans that the show was over and to evacuate the seating area. One fan, Andy VonDielingen, said that he witnessed a “disruption” in the general seating area closest to an outdoor stage, according to the Indianapolis Star.

No arrests have been made in connection with the threat.
