Threat sounds like it is under control,


Officials said after the lockdown that the incident was caused by a single suspect with a gun, who has been arrested.

Impossible. The campus is a gun free zone.

They messed up and ran the story about the last incident...

new info says no one arrested .

Completely different stories, I guess they rushed to get ANY info out rather than fact check.

Its Arkansas... I should be used to things here after 20+ years LOL!

I told my husband that no way was it another middle aged white guy in a white pick up truck with a propane tank.

Glad they finally got it straight!!!

Ha! Yes, agreed. When I was in high school everyone carried a rifle in the back window of their pickups, even the older folk

Is an 'active shooter' at a US school even news these days?
I'd actually be surprised if a month went by and nobody was shot to death at a US school.
Desensitised is the word tragically.

They say it was an "active shooter"

How can you call someone that when no shots are fired?

Is that a scare tactic or just someone jumping the gun on the situation.

JONESBORO, Ark. -- Jonesboro police say a lockdown for Arkansas State University has been lifted after no reported gunmen were found.

Investigators determined that actors in a student video project were mistaken for armed intruders.


ASU Campus Lockdown Lifted

You'd think their professor would have warned them to notify campus police if their "project" involved guns....lol.
