Receptionist thought student was "shooting some people outside of the school"
(NEWSER) – A Pennsylvania school district went into crisis mode yesterday over a shooting "threat" that turned out to be misheard lyrics from the Fresh Prince of Bel-Airtheme song. High school student Travis Clawson, 19, unwittingly found himself the subject of a manhunt when the receptionist at his eye doctor's office called to confirm an upcoming appointment and got his voicemail.
The greeting, to her ears, said he couldn't come to the phone because he was "shooting people outside of the school," the Beaver County Times reports.
