Student mistakes newspaper for gunshot

A Pennsylvania student’s report of a gunshot being fired was actually the sound of a newspaper hitting the sidewalk.

The Associated Press reports Gettysburg police Chief Joseph Dougherty saying a Gettysburg College student had claimed that someone in a white sedan fired a shot early Saturday morning.

But Dougherty says police investigated and determined the sound came from a newspaper delivery driver throwing a paper from her vehicle.

After the report, the college alerted students and employees via text messages, voicemails and emails.
