False Threat At VA Tech Rattles Students

Virginia Tech students got another scare this morning when police stormed a building on campus.

Swat teams entered Burruss Hall after getting reports of suspicious activity.

Some people inside the building were evacuated.

Officials say reports of the suspicious activity turned out to be false.

Still, the false alarm rattled some students.

"They were pulling people out and screaming don't let anyone else in the building and to secure the location and let everyone out,” said Cerryn Petty, Virginia Tech student, “Then we were pushed back."
