A Pennsylvania school was locked down last week after someone mistakenly took a students own rendition of the Fresh Prince theme song as a mass shooting threat.
As reported by TheTimesOnline, Beaver County PA schools had their lives “flipped, turned upside down” Thursday morning when a phone greeting involving the theme song from the 1990s sitcom “The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air” was taken as a threat.
All of the schools in PA’s Beaver county were locked down for about a half hour while police searched for a 19-year-old Ambridge Area High School student whose voicemail greeting was mistakenly taken as a threat about shooting up the school after a doctors office receptionist called the student to remind him of an appointment and thought she heard the words “shooting people outside of the school,” instead of the actual words of the song, “shooting some b-ball outside of the school.”
After hearing the voicemail greeting, the receptionist called 911, which caused the lockdown to go in effect until the student was detained, searched, and questioned, and all was figured out to be one BIG mistake.
