The campus of the University of Virginia at Wise was placed on lockdown tonight after reports spread of a gunman on campus.

Some have tweeted that they’ve heard gunshots, but that hasn’t been confirmed.

Twitchy will continue to monitor the situation.

A tweet from the Wise County/City of Norton Commonwealth’s Attorney indicates that the incident was a hoax.

David Frum managed to sneak in a call for some sort of action just about 10 minutes before the incident was revealed to have been a hoax.
