GETTYSBURG, Pa., Feb. 19 (UPI) -- Police in Pennsylvania said a report of a gunshot at Gettysburg College was actually the sound of a newspaper hitting the sidewalk.

Gettysburg Borough Police Chief Joseph Dougherty said a student reported a gunshot fired by a person in a white sedan early Saturday morning, but officers later discovered the woman driving the white sedan was delivering a newspaper and had thrown one onto the sidewalk at the location in question, The Evening Sun, Hanover, Pa., reported Tuesday.

Kendra Martin, the college's director of communications, said students and employees were alerted of the incident with text messages, emails and voice mails Saturday morning and an all-clear message was sent out around 8:30 a.m. Saturday.
