Ball State University on Lockdown for 3 ½ Hours Friday

Ball State and Muncie Police are investigating whether or not the shouts about a gun heard on campus on Friday was a prank.

Ball State was on lockdown for three and a half hours Friday afternoon after several witnesses heard someone yelling about a gun in the Health and Physical Activity building and called police.

Faculty and students were evacuated by police as they searched the building, but no one with a weapon was found.

If officials determine the response was the result of a prank, the responsible person could face disciplinary action from the school as well as criminal charges.
