    VA FERRUM College on Lockdown for Suspicious man

    I think this is going to be now a regular occurance. kids not wanting to go to class are going to do this to shut down schools. this is getting ridiculous.


    FERRUM, Va. - A college campus outside Roanoke, Va., is on lockdown as police search for a suspicious man on campus.

    Authorities say Ferrum College's president ordered the school locked down Tuesday morning after receiving reports of a suspicious man. The private school is in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains, about 35 miles south of Roanoke.

    A Franklin County Sheriff's Department spokeswoman says a number of officers are on campus. No additional information is available.

    Good thing they have a "zero tolerance" policy against handguns They sure were jovial during their press conference. Unbelievable.

    I have to say as a Former ferrum college student and with many friends on campus who I talked with The police are doing everything possible to insure the safty of the students. I was their this morning and with over 200 plus officers their they are very safe. It was scary this morning waking up to our campus alet text messages going off, but know all seems to be ok
