It was a hoax, the moron that made up the story is most likely a liberal anti-gun nut, that's frustrated with how slow the POTUS is in stealing everyone's guns. When he's doing dishes in a restaurant for a career, he'll wish he hadn't done this.

I am so grateful to the administration and security of UVA Wise and to the law enforcement agencies in Wise, Pound and Wytheville for their excellent response to the crisis. My daughter ( a freshman) was in her dorm with a friend. Since the lockdown has been lifted many of her friends have stopped by her dorm checking up on her. Her RA has been checking in with all her residents. UVA Wise is a family and they are pulling toghether. I am grateful no one was hurt. Tomorrow, my child will get up, go to class, take her test. She was brave. I am so proud of her. This will not change her opinion of UVA Wise nor will fear take over her life. Once again, thank you all for handling the crisis so well.

Seriously??? Awful-really awful!!! Absolutely reprehensible!!! I really hope that the "prankster" has some REALLY SERIOUS consequences coming down the pike to them, for doing this!! What in the world were they thinking??? Not cool!!! I bet that the Virginia State Police, all the local & campus police & law enforcement & all the staff at UVA Wise are PISSED & I hope that this idiot who made that stupid phone call, gets publicly humiliated by all of the Meanstream Media-like they're doing to that poor boy,Manti Teo,the Notre Dame football player-has to publicly apologize to everyone at UVA Wise-students,their parents & staff-pay every dime that this entire incident cost us taxpayers and some, and whatever else the judge decides...I hope this individual is charged with as many crimes as they can think of & has to face it & 'man-up' in court, and I hope that the judge presiding over the case has kids. This is absolutely reprehensible behavior & I personally am one who is so tired of no one having full accountability and responsibility for their actions anymore & blaming their actions on everything else & not suffering consequences. Sad state of affairs.

Are you saying that you have a belief that someone may be planning some sort of attack on the school?

Most public officials are pissed, that's how they come to be in the first place. That said, I don't really care if public officials get mad when they have to do their jobs, I just care if their being mad causes them lose their temper and act in malfeasance or in violation of their policy manuals or state law, which costs the tax payer money. The hoaxter will be indicted, tried in a court of law, most likely convicted and then sentenced to prison. That is what we pay the system to do, we don't donut eaters to be happy, sad, mad, glad, etc...we just pay them to do their job.

I would go for permanent expulsion, no refund on the tuition, a public apology, jail time, and community service for 2000 hours!

Agree Native, but would also include paying the county/city back for all resources used to respond to this "joke". Why should tax payer have to pay for it.

I hope the hoaxer gets throw in jail AND is made to pay for all the expenses incurred during this incident. I also hope that every student who were affected by this sues them and their parents for emotional distress.

If anyone deserves to lose everything they work for it is individuals like this.

It's funny, but since there wasn't a gun or shooter involved, the media is burying this story for some reason,:)

The media is not burying the story. They were withholding information until formal charges could be filed. A sophomore psychology major Bryant Hairston is in custody charged with falsely summoning law enforcement.
