    At 9:09 a.m. three juveniles attending a camp at the university
    reported seeing a white male, 6 feet tall, with light brown hair
    outside of New Residence Hall East holding what may have been a
    handgun. They say the weapon was covered by a cloth or covering of
    some sort. He was walking fast in the direction of the volleyball
    courts. He was wearing a blue and white striped shirt (stripes were
    vertical), gray shorts and brown sandals. The subject had no facial
    hair or glasses.

    Officers responded immediately to the area but found no one matching
    the description. Police have encountered no other witnesses reporting
    this individual or anything suspicious. Law enforcement officers from
    VTPD, Blacksburg PD and Montgomery County Sheriff's Office are
    patrolling the campus, continuing to look for the subject.

    Hope it's just some kids with a really tasteless practical joke then.

    Hope this is a big misunderstanding-- it would be strange for something like this to happen with no one on campus yet.

    Yep, hopefully its nothing with extra caution being taken because of what's happened there before.

    Hoping this is the case as well. Starting to sound a little like what happened at aTm last year where somebody had a replica weapon and was actually in the corp.
