A student at a technical college sent a text message: “Gunna be at west hall today.” West Hall is a combination middle and high school in Gainesville, Ga. There were two problems with the message: he sent it to the wrong number, and his phone auto- corrected the spelling of the first word — to “gunman”. The alarmed recipient called police, who advised the school to go into lockdown to deal with the apparent threat. Once the message was tracked down to the sender and it became apparent that it was all a mistake, the lockdown was lifted.
