911 call led to lockdown at Ferrum College Thursday morning

Two Franklin County juveniles could face charges for false report

FRANKLIN COUNTY, Va. – Two Franklin County juveniles could face charges after falsely reporting a man with a gun and a body found.  
The call led to a lockdown at Ferrum College Thursday morning.
Students were told to stay inside their classrooms after the Franklin County Sheriff's Office got a 911 call near Prillaman Switch Road.
Deputies later determined that the report was unfounded.
It's not certain if the juveniles will face charges or not.
The case remains under investigation.
