Posted: Updated:
MURFREESBORO, TN (WSMV) -

Murfreesboro police say they are taking a bomb threat against the Islamic Center of Murfreesboro seriously due to heightened tensions surrounding the upcoming anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks.

Police say someone called the Islamic center Monday and left a threatening voicemail message stating that they will place a bomb inside the building on Sept. 11.

Police have not released other details into the threat, but they are treating it is a real threat due to recent tensions over the building of a new mosque.

The Department of Homeland Security is assisting in the investigation.
